It is increasing, no doubt. And honestly, it is becoming a little seller's market. After 4 offers, I can't get a property for below asking price, and they are not even short sales or properties in foreclosure!

These numbers are great!! It's good to see areas around the country that are in a seller market. Here in Austin sales prices are down a little but number of homes sold is staying steady.
