We could do with more homes on the market in North Liberty, at the moment buyers don’t have a whole lot of choices. Of course that will change in a few weeks when the warmer weather arrives. If you’ve got a house to sell, you might want to get a head start on that and get it on the market before you have more competition. The low inventory works in your favor and something you could take advantage of.
