What does this mean? 

Buyers are getting discouraged.  The average list price continues to climb but the average sale price is not escalating at the same rate.  Sellers may need to rethink their spring pricing strategy as summer drags on.  Buyers waiting for a better deal may be out of luck unless they are willing to bid high and fast for newly listed properties.

Final note on Cincinnati home sales update:  homes on the market for an extended period of time are probably overpriced and need to adjust prices.  Inspections are still a problem so consider having your property inspected before it’s listed and fixing what’s broken so buyers are willing to pay top dollar.
