Realtor to review housing market

Local realtor Brian Cichella will discuss the leading indicators of the improving housing market in a 7 p.m. presentation on Sept. 17 at the Wayland Free Public Library. The indicators include new home starts, larger inventories of previously owned homes for sale, selling prices that are closer to asking prices, houses spending fewer days on the market, and multiple bids for homes. His 90-minute talk will also examine the reported surge of new home sales, and purchase prices versus real numbers in the local market.
