“Inventory remains low, prices continue to creep up and buyers are rebelling,” reports Linda O’Koniewski, CEO of RE/MAX Leading Edge, “Buyers frustrated by competition and high prices are taking a step back and beginning a 'wait and see' approach. Our agents, who’ve been used to 8, 10 and 12 offers are now seeing a significant decrease in the number of offers on their properties. The high-end market especially has slowed significantly. I expect the market will begin to normalize in the weeks and months ahead.”
