According to NAR’s February's pending home sales data, all regions showed gains except for the Northeast, which saw a slight 0.2% drop. Pending home sales in the South only increased 2.1% and just 0.7% in the West. However, pending home sales in the Midwest surged 11.4%.

If you’d like a list of cities that are still great buying opportunities that are at the beginning of their growth phases, join the Real Wealth Network. It's free! You'll get access to all the data available and have the chance to meet with one of our experienced investment counselors.
