Market Synopsis: Although the absorption rate is one of the lowest in
the area, for the under 300K homes, this market area is still seeing
some reduction in sold price and price per sq ft. With more active listings
coming on the market in the spring, this will not help current inventory
sell faster or for more money. Your home must be priced competitively
and be in great condition to see the best offer from a Forest Hill buyer.
