He described the village as a place where it’s “the hardest to buy and the easiest to sell — there is always low inventory and a lot of demand.”
As the pandemic surged last spring, the demand escalated, said Melissa Palley, an agent with Compass’s Francie Malina Team. “We had bidding wars and people buying houses sight unseen. Then, once things started opening up, we saw less panic-buying and more pushback on pricing. Now we have some people looking and some saying they are going to wait till spring. Inventory is still low, but the market is returning to a more normal pace.”
