“We are still seeing home sales move quickly and market conditions haven’t normalized yet, but September’s housing activity is closer to a typical fall experience,” said Kristen Johnson, Coeur d’Alene Association of REALTORS® President. “The Coeur d’ Alene area still has a strong demand from buyers, but they are being a little more cautious when they pick their home. Homebuyers and sellers should work with a REALTOR® who can help them navigate what is still a very complex process.”
