This increase has helped to calm the market and will provide buyers and sellers with more opportunities to negotiate pricing and concessions.”
There were 2,576 sales pending sales at the end of October. This is down from the 3,358 pending we saw October 2017. The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 29 days.
