Inventory: Total homes listed for sale in April declined 59.9% year-over-year from 598 to 240 listings. Months of supply declined from 3.4 to 0.9, reflecting a market where sellers generally have elevated bargaining power.

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in April was $184,000, an increase of 22.9% from one year ago and an increase of 5.3% from March.

ACRE recommends consulting with a local real estate professional to discuss pricing, as it will vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.
