“There is no question that we have seen a shift from the unsustainable activity that occurred throughout the pandemic as some of the supply challenges have eased. While fewer new properties are being listed below $800,000, there are more opportunities for buyers looking to move up in the market. The danger for both buyers and sellers can be trying to time the market. With conditions sometimes turning quickly or silently, it is important to talk to a professional RAHB REALTOR® who is plugged into the local market.” — Lou Piriano, President of RAHB.
