Home Sales: buyer's advantage shrinking

Greater Cincinnati home sales are up for the fifteenth month in a row. In Cincinnati the gain was bigger at 11% when compared to the same month last year.

Northern Kentucky's sales increase was just 2%. In both places median prices are increasing and home inventories are declining, a sign realtors say indicates the buyer's advantage is starting to shrink.
