From this quick view we see 1 Fewer Pending transaction compared to last month (January was down by 10), and approximately a year's supply of inventory available at the end of the month. This month the 3rd Party + Pre-Foreclosures + Foreclosures combined are still running at a high level, although we are starting to see within that mix about an even number of short-sales vs. foreclosures being sold.

This is a very interesting report.  I was a bit surprised to see the number of foreclosures in your area.  Hopefully, the market will start to stabalize.

Hello Joan, thanks for stopping by.  Yes, this market has taken a hit and healing from many distressed property sales -- we're almost at the end, however!
