The market never truly slowed this winter (just a bit for the holidays); low inventory and sustained low mortgage rates continue to make the market competitive for buyers. HOWEVER, rates are inching up slightly, as predicted by experts. As we enter the spring market we expect inventory to pick up from the winter months, with rates somewhat steady around 3%.
