“It is great to see the number of homes slowly increasing. It is an extremely fast-paced market. The pool of buyers is strong and multiple offers are still very common. For these reasons, we encourage any potential buyers to use a Realtor as their guide. In addition, it will be important to have their finances in order and ready to move quickly once they begin looking for homes,” stated DMAAR President Jen Stanbrough.
