The Topsham Real Estate Market Report for June is showing us that things have continued with the same amount of market force as Topsham’s May market report. The inventory remained about the same which is hopefully giving buyers more options to look at as new properties come on the market. It is not a bad idea to consider a back up offer in this type of market. You are in first place if the first contract falls through plus you can keep shopping while you wait!
