Is it a buyer's or seller's market?  The market has shifted slightly.  We are seeing price reductions and an increase in inventory.  However, we are in the midst of the selling season when homeowners are faced with decisions about changing schools, seniors graduating, and parents left with a bigger home than they need.  However, seasonality does not necessarily mean that the bubble is "bursting".  We take the position that the current real estate market is shifting toward a more stable and historically normal condition.  That said, we will not see homes selling as fast.  Sellers have enjoyed, and I would say spoiled by, a selling trend of 30 - 60 days.  

We predict that the "old" normal of a 6 months supply is returning.  However, homes in better condition, staged properly, and priced right,  will continue to enjoy faster selling times.  This is a fact that has always held true in any market.  As we navigate through the shift, it is critically important to hire a real estate professional fully aware of these changes in order to advise their clients and position them in the best manner possible.  

Same holds true with buyers seeking help with their purchase; it is as important to hire a realtor who understands true market value.
