Second-quarter home buying statistics show home buyers are still motivated to purchase a home, but there isn't much of an inventory to choose from.
The Greater Rochester Association of Realtors released statistics Thursday.
President Linda Wilson says sales fell 12 percent in the quarter, and the market is down over 37 percent because of the low inventories.
"This quarter we've only had 1,597 houses that are available for sale. The good part is the sales price has increased by 4.1 percent," she said.
That translates to a median house price of $138,500.
