Listing Inventory Rises:

Listing inventory is up 5% from last year. Actually listing inventory is down but it’s always down this time of year.  Inventory levels are rising nationally and are at their highest levels in over a year.

Rising inventory levels is seen as a good sign as inventory levels have been dangerously low.  This has caused prices to rise.  as prices have risen more sellers can now afford to sell, and builders are bringing new homes to the market because prices have risen.  Many sells don’t realize new construction inventory is about to hit the market starting in September.  This should help level out prices.

The SW Florida real estate market is in good shape because our local economy is strong here.  A weaker housing market up North can affect us here in SW Florida, but there is usually a lag.
