Median prices for existing homes nationally continued to climb in the third quarter of 2015, as reported by the National Association of Realtors®.
The report suggests an “encouraging lift-off” in existing-home sales, despite the low supply of available dwellings. Slower overall price appreciation is contributing to the rosier outlook.
Our Kingsburg outlook is not quite as rosy for October, but I can tell you that November has gone crazy. We are busier now than all year. I think it has something to do with taking a vacation. But getting back to the October market, we only had 5 homes that closed escrow. The inventory dropped too, down to 28 Active listings. However, the number of Pending homes that are in escrow and closing soon is up to18 so the November numbers should all be up.
