Sellers are getting optimistic about the price of the homes. The median sale price still remains at $230,000 so the prices are still being adjusted by the offers or the appraisal.
The months of inventory of homes for sale still remains right around three months. This indicates a sellers market so try to be as competitive as possible on any offers you make to purchase a home. There are still great deals out there, you just have to work harder and longer to find them.
