Inventory: March listings (262) increased 30.3% from February and increased 70.1% from one year ago. Months of supply (inventory to sales ratio) increased from 1.3 to 2.4 year over year, reflecting a market where seller’s generally have elevated bargaining power. 

Pricing: The area’s median sales price in March was $247,585, an increase of 31.0% from one year ago and an increase of 11.5% from February.
