Another piece of news that I’d like to share with you is the increase in the number of properties that are selling in the RED Zone areas. We are seeing more and more of these properties selling, of course at a lower price. This is a great indicator for the market. For more detailed info in this regards contact me.
Overall we are seeing a normal healthy activity in the market and as of today we only have 5.05 month of supply available. We hope this number increases as it will bring more buyers into the market.
