I don't know how it is in the other parts of the state, but here in the southern part of the state houses are selling as fast as they hit the market and often for more than the asking price. There seem to be some that look like bidding wars! I realize that interest rates are very low, but are there other reasons for this? Is there a housing shortage everywhere? I've never seen anything like this and probably wouldn't be aware, except my daughter and son-in-law are in the process of selling a house and buying one.
