This is up from the 4.1 months of inventory at last month’s check yet remains a seller’s market. Average home sales prices rose 7.6% compared to August of last year and this follows up an 9.3% increase at our check last month. Kansas has now had 25 straight months of year over year increases in home sales volume.
