Most housing markets across the country are continuing to chug along toward recovery as the local market begins its first buds into spring mode. New listings and overall inventory have become the prominent indicators to watch, as demand for quality homes to buy is up. Agents in some areas are seeing the highest prices and fastest selling times in years. Where it used to take months, it can now take mere days to sell an appealing home.
