Kansas Housing Market Stats – June 2019

“Home sales were down 3.6 percent through the first six months of the year,” said KAR president, Steve LaRue with McGrew Real Estate in Lawrence. “This appears to be due primarily to the lack of inventory. The 3.1 months’ supply at the end of June was the lowest figure on record for this time of year.”
