Some are seeing up to 30 OFFERS on one home and people are waiving inspections and contingencies left and right. To hear all the philosophy and details about how to interpret some of this data, go back and listen to ep. 70 and 73. Almost the same thing that was happening in 2022 is happening again in 2023.
