Here’s everything you need to know about our market as we move through fall.

Want to buy a home? Search all homes for sale

We’re well into the fourth quarter of 2020, and our market remains tight—so tight, in fact, that a lot of our home builders have sold out and are wait-listing in order to manage demand. When new inventory gets finished, they see bidding wars immediately. I never thought I’d see a situation where buyers are willing to offer more on new construction homes, but here we are. New construction is just one example of our atypically hot fall market.
