The number of active listings was down 25% from one year earlier, and up 11% from the previous month. This recent increase reflected a larger selection of homes for buyers to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just over 440-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up more than 100%.
