My thoughts: On-markets have dropped. I have had several clients out during the past ten days, and we have seen nothing good, unfortunately. Most people will wait until fall, both buyers and sellers, I guess. Meanwhile, those who do sell, get close to final asking price, which is close to original asking price.
