 Now that the annual home buying summer surge has happened listing inventory the selection of homes is growing. This is good news for locals who wanted to sell and make a move, but didn’t.  The main worry, “What if we sell ours and can’t find another?”  During the summer surge this was a legitimate concern.  Things are changing for the better.

Now that the seasonal surge (see picture below) is slowing, selection is growing and the previously legitimate “what-if-we-don’t-find-something-we-like” worry is waning.   Now may be  a safer better time for locals to take advantage of a still strong seller’s market and the best selection of homes for sale in seven months.
