That represent around 1207 properties sold through the RAHB Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) system. “Listings and sales through October were better than last year for the same month and higher than the 10-year average for the month,” said RAHB CEO Ross Godsoe. “We continue to see lower inventory, which again translates into a seller’s market for the area in the month of October.”
