Housing market bucks the trend


family homes, condos and co-ops.

The Trulia data is one of many sources that local real estate agents consider when trying to gauge how the market is doing; but they caution that it shouldn’t be considered an absolute source of informatio­n.

John Petrack, executive vice president of the Realtors Associatio­n of Metropolit­an Pittsburgh, said housing inventorie­s vary greatly within the greater Pittsburgh area and can change quickly. In areas such as Ross and McCandless, the number of houses on the market is relatively low, making it a seller’s market. But along some of the river communitie­s, in Pittsburgh’s West End and most of the South Hills, they have a solid inventory, Mr. Petrack said.

“All real estate is local,” he said.
