Home Sales Rebound in October!
For the first time in 2 years, sales activity in October resembled normal levels. This shift in sales this month is likely related to the new mortgage rule changes, inventory gains in the lower price ranges and further price adjustments. The combination of all these factors may have encouraged purchasers to take advantage of the market conditions particularly in the lower price ranges. However, with several factors at play, the monthly shift in demand may be temporary and will need to be monitored over the next several months.
