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.
