“This year has been a bit of a roller coaster ride, but with over $950 million in closed sales volume, it is hard to be upset,” said Mike Hughes, Vice President of Downing-Frye Realty, Inc. “This summer, like most of the year, has been a bit challenging. I am very proud of our agents because they continue to meet this market head on. We are now seven months into the year and our agents have brought in over 2,000 pending sales contracts. That’s what I call results! Inventory is at a nice level right now, and interest rates are pretty low by historical standards. We continue to see our share of summer visitors, and it is obvious that they like what they see.”
