There's a couple conclusions to draw from this info above... We have had a decent year in price increases across the board.  Our average annual appreciation in the valley is 4-6% and most cities are well within that range. The areas that tend to be up a bit higher also have the lower average price point which means tons of buyer competition and a lower inventory supply.  What does this mean?  Prices have kept going in a great direction for Sellers and inventory levels remain low which helps the days on market numbers over all.  With buyer demand up 25%, 4th quarter is going to be a great selling season again.  Check your value now!
