Welcome to January's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of December. The number of active listings was down 13% from one year earlier, and down 18% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 7%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 270-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 1% year-over-year, and increased 4% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market. Thanks for watching.
