The number of active listings was up 2% from one year earlier, and down 10% from the previous month. Even so, buyers still enjoyed a greater selection of homes today than they did one year ago. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was 250-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 30%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 150-thousand dollars.
