What does this mean? It was a HOT summer and now that it's cooled down people will be out and about LOOKING for a home.  BUT as long as home inventory is LOW home buyers won't be able to move. Notice the days on market stat went DOWN. That means the housing market is competitive and pent up buyer demand is HIGH.
