Check back next Saturday and I will compare to 2019 and 2018 so you can see how the market looks this year compared to the other 2 years.

Solds are the most important figures to look at.  Those are actual numbers.  New listings can be canceled and relisted.  Contracts accepted might not actually close.  Some of them don’t make it past the home inspection and attorney review or the buyers loan does not go through.  That is why there is such a big difference in the totals.  Some of them get accepted, canceled and relisted and contract accepted again.
