Real Estate Inventory Continues Steady Upward Trend

This is very interesting. From the numbers stated it looks like we are in a Seller's Market in Redwood City because of more home being taken off the market for sale compared to new homes coming on to the market. Additonally, it looks like the number of homeowners who lowered their asking price compared to the number of new homes on the market sits at 45%! Interesting. Good blog Eddie Lam.
