We continue to see pending sales for a given month far outweigh closed sales, largely due to short sales being factored into the total average.   Hence, short sales are typically taking 60 days for short sale approval and another 30 to 40 days to close the transaction.

 

Until next month,
GOD BLESS You & Your Family
