The overarching trend for this year is that homes have been selling for slightly higher prices, in fewer days, and the supply of inventory is now at record low levels. Our inventory hasn't been this low in over TEN years! The new tax legislation could have ramifications on housing, and this is a developing story that we will be watching over the coming months.
There should be more listing activity by more confident sellers in 2018. At least that would be the most viable prediction for an economic landscape pointing toward improved conditions for sellers.
