    “Buyers snatched up homes as soon as they came on the market in the spring and once again pushed closed sales up,” said 2016 MAR President Annie Blatz, branch executive at Kinlin Grover Real Estate in Brewster. “Although new listings had been on the rise, they are down for the second straight month in May. We need to encourage hesitant sellers to add to the inventory by listing their homes in order to keep the market moving and prices from going too high.”
