According to John Huntington, Jr., President of the Lawrence Board of REALTORS®, “As 2022 fast approaches, we are still experiencing record low numbers of homes available for sale in Lawrence, much like other communities in America. The lack of inventory has not stopped Buyers from buying in 2021 as the number of homes sold have kept pace with 2020 numbers.  With the new year approaching, all indications point to a tight home inventory, just as we have had the past couple of years. Could now be the right time for you to Buy or Sell your home? Contact your local REALTOR® to know for sure.”
