National View

The Existing-Home Sales report for July 2017 by NAR (National Association of Realtors) is scheduled for Thursday, August 24, 2017, and we will update our website at that time.

Home sales in June slipped in June as low supply kept homes selling at a near record pace but ultimately ended up muting overall activity.  Overall sales were decreased 1.8%t to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.52 million in June from 5.62 million in May. Unlike Maine, national home sales are slightly ahead of last year (0.7%).

Total housing inventory at the end of June declined 0.5% to 1.96 million existing homes available for sale, and is now 7.1% lower than a year ago (2.11 million) and has fallen year-over-year for 25 consecutive months. Unsold inventory is at a 4.3-month supply at the current sales pace, which is down from 4.6 months a year ago.

Thinking of Buying or Selling?

If you are considering selling in the near future, now is clearly the time to put you home on the market – and of course, we are the company to call......…..

As Ben Franklin once said: Well done is better than well said.   Until next time…..Imagine More!
