Traverse Area Market Activity 2/18 to 3/11, 2019

Real Estate Market Report – In the Traverse area’s six counties (Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Kalkaska), the number of new listings coming on the market slowed. Pending sales increased while closed sales remained almost the same. Will better weather bring more properties into the marketplace?  Stay tuned.
