Conceivably this is when the market is working as it should.  136 Actives divided by 10 Solds equals 13.6 months of inventory.  This is a Buyer’s Market by this

Many of the homes on the market in Wellesley in the last month are overpriced. This is clear when you look at DOM and Avg.Sale$/SqFt.  Shorter time to offer and a much longer DOM indicates a degree of overpriced listings languishing on the market.
