The number of active listings was down 22% from one year earlier, and did not change 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 570-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 10%.
