Contract accepted this week
Contracts accepted this week were slightly off of the week before. 302 this week compared to 338 the week before. It was another rainy week. I don’t know if that contributed to it but we are tired of the rain. Next week it looks like only Wednesday will be raining, It is a good time to look at homes when it is raining though to see if there are any leaks or water in basements. So rain sometimes is a good time to look at homes.
