As of June 30th, there were 1,265 single family homes available for purchase, which is a 9% increase over the last month. An even more sizable increase of 37% was realized since this time last year, providing needed relief to home buyers in our region. Sixty-nine percent of available homes are priced under $600,000.

For homes priced under $300,000, we only have 29 days of inventory, and for homes in the range of $300,000 to $600,000, inventory is 2.5 months.
