The closed column is the most important one to look at.  These are actual numbers. 

Some of the closings were carried over from 2020.  That is why there are more closed than new listings. 

Contracts accepted column can have numbers that are counted more than once.  Some seller’s accept a contract and then they don’t make it past attorney review, home inspection or buyer does not obtain financing so they go back on the market and get another contract. 

Check back with us every Saturday for the 2021 by the month.  At the end of each month we compare to 2020 and 2019 so you can see how the year has gone and look at the pattern for when most activity occurs.
