Happy New Year!
The big question is what is going happen this year in the housing market. Will prices continue to slide? Or will the market pick up? Will housing crash completely?
Despite all the opinions, no one can reliably predict that market. We will just have to wait and see. Last December sales and the number of new listings continued to drop as Buyers continued to be inactive. Stay tuned to see if this inactivity will continue in 2019.
In December, sales were down 33.3% from November of this year, and down 46.8% from December 2017. There were 1,407 New Listings, a 25.6% decrease from December 2017 and a 59.3% decrease from November of this year.
