“Lower inventory is predictable in the winter months,” stated GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “The continued increase in sales price could make for complex negotiations. Seeking the advice from a Realtor is critical in this market,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, says two consecutive months of increases is a welcomed sign for the market. “The market conditions in November were mixed, with good signs of stabilizing home sales compared to recent months, though down significantly from one year ago. Rising inventory is clearly taming home price appreciation.”
