We suspect a “vacation mode” was the reality of June, so there were fewer transactions in July. Next month we’ll see the increase, with 48 new contracts in August, and a total of 95 homes under contract.

22% of homes sold in July were cash transactions. This shows a lot of investors and flippers in the market. When prices are on the uptick, we see more flips.
