The inventory/sales ratio, which indicates the number of months to clear the current inventory of homes on the market, was 6.1 months, 3.2% less than the previous month.

“We have had ten months of price increases since January 2014 and seven months of quantity gains since April 2014 indicating a stable market,” said Marian Stafford, president of Greensboro Regional REALTORS® Association. “Interest rates are at record lows and more product is coming on the market since sellers are listing their homes as prices are rising.
