“The drop in closed sales is countered by the rise in pending, which should make for an interesting fall market,” said GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “Never hesitate to consult with a REALTOR to make sure you are getting the best and most accurate advice,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, says “falling mortgage rates are improving housing affordability and nudging buyers into the market.” However, he added that the supply of affordable housing is severely low. “The shortage of lower-priced homes have markedly pushed up home prices.”
