Markets attuned to home buyers’, sellers’ needs

In a recent study, real estate information portal Zoocasa looked at the sales-to-listings ratios of housing markets nationwide.

Using data from local real estate boards, the analysis ranked markets based on their suitability to the needs of home buyers and sellers alike.

Zoocasa cautioned users to not mistake buyers’ markets for the most affordable destinations. The designation specifically indicates that a market has a low likelihood of competitive hurdles such as bidding wars.
