“The region’s housing market is calming compared to the hectic pace experienced at the beginning of the year,” ABoR President Susan Horton said in the release. “While it wouldn’t be appropriate to say market conditions are normalizing—inventory is still at an all-time low and homes are still selling as soon as they hit the market—August’s housing activity is closer to what we would typically experience in the fall."
