Did the Government Shutdown "Shutdown" Real Estate?

 

Not yetDespite the shutdown (and it's impact on lending) and the typical seasonal slow down we hit once fall and winter kick-in, October was a good month.  Year-to-date closed sales were up about 19% in 2013  and prices increased 11%.  Inventory is still about a 1.75 months supply.  In fact, inventory hasn't risen above a two months supply in 2013.
