The Seller’s Market trend of the past few years appears to be cooling off. Year-over-year homes sales are dropping slightly and our typical sales price increases are slowing down. Although the Days on Market remains almost half what it was in February of this year, people are having a harder time finding homes in the average price range. This means that the PPAR market needs more average-priced residential homes to rent.
