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 3% from one year earlier, and did not change from the previous month.

As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 370-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was down 27%. This lower number of days may signal a positive trend in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just over 340-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 8% year-over-year, and increased 57% month-over-month. Despite a slight annual decrease, this upward monthly sales trend indicates positive momentum.
