The Triangle market has worked to clear listing inventories which right now are hovering at just under a three month supply. This stress on product inventory, primarily in the detached housing market is pushing prices higher. Condominiums still present a bit of a problem with tightening restrictions on lending criteria from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.*
