Pended properties (properties under contract) remains strong at 87 (SF-47, Con-31, Dup-7 & Lot-2) close to last month at 86 and in the middle of the previous six months at 90, 94, 112, 92, 71 & 42. Distressed properties continue to be non-existent as they have been for the last couple of years with again none in the current inventory and only two in the last twenty-seven months.
