Welcome to March's Market Update. Lets take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of February.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 6%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 330-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 23% year-over-year, and decreased 19% month-over-month.
