Housing inventory remains tight despite a noticeable uptick of homes on the market, but prices continue to remain high and are in no danger of declining just yet. What will change, is how quickly a home appreciates in value as we move towards the end of the year.

For buyers what the numbers show is that housing inventory remains tight, however, we are starting to see some softening in regards to sales price and days on the market, but not enough to expect huge discounts when purchasing a property.
For sellers, you can still sell your home for top dollar, but do not expect your appreciation value to continue skyrocketing, we may have reached the top of the mountaintop. Keep pricing your homes appropriately and they will sell.
