The byproduct of this surge in new offerings for buyers left an end of the month inventory far larger and healthier than it has been in years. MLS® sales were ahead of last September by 8% and 3% over the 10-year average for September MLS® sales activity. September also sets a new dollar volume record, just edging out September 2011 when there were over 1200 sales.

September MLS® results conclude a very impressive third quarter where all the additional listings were capturing buyers’ attention.
