Welcome to March's Market Update,. Let's take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of March. The number of active listings was down 12% from one year earlier, and down 4% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 31%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was 60-thousand dollars. The number of units sold increased 9% year-over-year, and increased 50% month-over-month. These figures may indicate that buyers have been taking advantage of opportunities in this market. Thanks for watching.
