Months supply of inventory really can be looked at with regards to how the Como Park Market “Feels.”  We peaked with supply being at its highest in 2011, and as the market conditions improved, Como Park inventory levels dropped as well.  This is what is the cause of multiple offers and homes selling over asking price.  Any area that has a high demand location and low amounts of homes available will create this type of environment.
