Weekly Market Activity Report
"The U.S. housing market is becoming a tale of regions. Consumers in high-priced markets in the West are pushing back with fewer showings and sales. The Midwest is marked mostly by stability of new listings and sales with gently improving inventory. Many Northeast markets have routinely struggled to keep pace with the overall U.S. economic recovery. And the South is enjoying more showings and sales than the rest of the nation. Here's what's happening in the local market." VIEW REPORT

"New listings increased this July compared to last year, which could hint at a flurry of sellers looking to take advantage of this strong market." - David Arbit | READ MORE

The MAAR Diversity Committee is putting on an event with national speaker Marki Lemons to our area to speak in more detail about Fair Housing in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. We hope you attend!

"Together Everyone Achieves More", fifty years have passed since Lyndon Johnson signed the Fair Housing bill.  History is the foundation that we will build upon, and everyone should have an opportunity to be heard.  It has been resolved that the National Association of REALTORS will work with the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, Asian Real Estate Association of America, National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals, and Women's Council of REALTORS® to ensure equal housing opportunity for all, today and in the future. We will review the past while developing creative ways to ensure an equal future.
