September was the best month so far in 2020 for closed homes.  Closed homes is the most important column to look at.  This is actual numbers.  New listings and contracts accepted can both have number that were counted more than once.  A new listing can be relisted as new even though it has been on the market before.  Also for contract accepted.  Sometimes a contract does not make it through the home inspection and attorney review period or something might come up on a buyers credit that did not show up initially so they do not get approved.  The home goes back on the market and gets another contract.

It really has been a better year than we expected during a pandemic.  We think 2021 will continue to be a sellers market.  Interest rates continue to be fantastic.  If you have thought about refinancing to get a better rate you might think about moving instead.
