Closed is the most important column. These are actual numbers.  September was the best month so far this year for closed single family homes.

New listings sometimes are relisted as a new listing when they are not.

Contracts accepted can sometimes not make it through the home inspection and attorney review period for many different reasons.  So both of those columns are not actual numbers.  

Next week will be the last week of the year.  We will compare this year with 2019 and 2018 so you can see how this year compares to those 2 years.

We had no idea in February how this year would go.  Buyers were out there wanting a bigger home for a home office and space for e-learning and a bigger yard.  Inventory has remained low so prices have gone up.
