One of the biggest questions people are asking right now is: what’s happening with home prices?

If you’re thinking about selling your house, you may have heard about the housing market slowing down in recent months.

So far this year, housing inventory has been increasing and that’s making the prospect of finding your dream home less difficult. While there are always reasons you could delay making a big decision, there are also always reasons to consider moving forward. And having a growing number of options for your home search may be exactly what you needed to feel more confident in…
