Active listings were up 9.9% over last October with 698 properties available vs 635 in October 2018. Despite the increase, overall supply remained quite low compared to historical levels. The average sale price for a residential property was an astonishing $585,289, up 12.5% year over year, reaching almost record highs and likely creating affordability issues for some Buyers.
