While these statistics are quite encouraging, we remind sellers that everything in real estate is a function of time and price.  So, if you price out of the reach of the market place, be prepared to wait significantly longer than the market averages, especially right now where properties are being listed at a ratio of 3 to 1 over what is selling.
