“The market has definitely changed around August,” said Barbara Henderson of Kentwood Real Estate.  “The market has flattened out, particularly for single family homes.  Condos held strong but probably because of inventory is even lower in condos than single family properties.  It will be interesting to see what 2018 brings.  I believe these numbers are positive as we may be moving towards a more normal market, which will be best for all concerned.”
