There has been a lot of talks about this year’s real estate market.  From the boom in property value, new construction, as well as a shift in inventory, many folks are wondering how this year’s market stacks up against 2016.  Well the latest stats are in and you may be surprised by some of the figures. TREND has broke down a year to year comparison of the October 2017 market to the October 2016 market.  Everything from Median Price to average showing appointments to settled listings.
