Claudia Llanes, Edgewater, FL: "Prices have increased due to the low single-family home inventory that's currently available."

Elliot Bogod of Broadway Realty, Upper West Side, New York City, NY: "Manhattan is the only area not increase will be remembered as years of opportunity in residential real estate. Prices are expected to stabilize before the end of the year and increase after the pandemic is over."

Karen Kenyon, Vancouver Island, British Columbia: "Significantly higher and still trending upwards due to low inventory."
Kathleen Floryan, Jacksonville, FL: "Up."

Mark Salmon, South Tahoe, CA: "50% higher."
Nilou Henderson of Henderson Ventures, Charlotte, NC: "Steadily increasing. Some areas have seen an increase of almost 20% in the last year. I expect the increases to remain as inventory remains low."
