After the huge home sales numbers we saw in August, I was pretty sure the real estate market had completely turned around….
Well, September numbers put a damper on the optimism. Cache County home sales were down 39% compared with August; 79 residential homes sold compared with 129. Total residential home sales were even down 9.2% from September of 2011 when 87 homes sold.
Real estate inventory in Cache County continues to decline. Right now there are 621 homes listed on the MLS, this is 83 less listings than at this time a year ago. Many potential home buyers can’t find what they are looking for.
