Welcome to March's Market Update. Lets take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of February. The number of active listings was down 13% from one year earlier, and down 7% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 15%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was 130-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 18% year-over-year, and decreased 7% month-over-month.
