Hardly a day goes by that I don't get asked that question. I guess the answer to that is "It depends who you are", because some segments of the local market are showing some strong early sales volume. while other segments are not. Traditionally, the first time homebuyer has driven the spring market in North and Central Berkshire County, and this year looks to be no different, with both areas showing sales numbers the highest they have been since 2007. South County sales are at levels not seen since 2006. Overall, the lack of inventory is creating a challenge for certain buyers, particularly affordable  first time buyer homes. For a full in depth analysis of current conditions click the link below.
