"With the recent slow down in sales and the leveling in median price, many are asking, 'Are we looking at another real estate bubble?'," said John Graham, 2017 president RSAR and a REALTOR® with Re/Max Premier Properties. "All the indicators say no. If you look at pending sales, unit sales, new listings and median price there is no one factor that is out of alignment or indicating signs of a bubble. They are all following a more seasonal trend."
