The number of active listings was down 14% from one year earlier, and up 4% 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 under 300-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 1%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 240-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 4% year-over-year, and held steady month-over-month. Even though sales figures were down from a year ago, the recent local market conditions were basically unchanged. Thanks for watching.
