August 2023: What's Happening in the Watauga Housing Market?

sunflower-with-pollinator-revised
​ I'm still pondering what makes this market a mystery.The mystery is more apparent in the Watauga housing market than the Ashe housing market. That is, the stats – what's up, what's down, what's holding steady – are all over the place, in inconsistent ways to what we usually see.The number of new home listings is up, and by August that's usually t...
