        • DoM: “here’s what we’re looking at…”
      • Buyer off the fence
        • Inventory: “You’re in the highest-demand segment”
        • Average vs. Median DoM: the best properties moving more quickly
    • 12. Understanding Buyer & Seller “Competition” (Inventory Trends: Davis, CA) Never assume that your clients know the trends.
    • 13. Setting the Price Right & Knowing the Market % Price Decreased : Measures the number of active listings that have experienced a price reduction in the last 90 days
    • 14. Trends: New Listings & Exits Prices of New Listings (black) trending lower & below the Median (orange) And the good deals are disappearing! (green)

      • Example: 80 homes for sale in a market (city or zip code)
