“The leveling in the median price, along with the increase in this month’s supply of inventory are all indicators that the market may be softening during the winter season,” said William Process, 2016 RSAR President and a REALTOR with HomeGate Realty of Nevada in a press release. “To help ensure a sale during the winter slowdown, sellers should be in conversations with their Realtor to make sure the house is priced appropriately for today’s market.”
