Unit sales were up considerably over last year.  The market was certainly brisker this April than last with  31% more sales this year.  That is a great sign for sellers.  The other encouraging number is the sell/list ratio.  This percentage has gone up by 11 percentage points over the same time last year.  This indicates that there are fewer houses languishing on the market.

Sale prices were down over last year by 2%.  With a slightly lower average price and 31% more sales it would appear that home owners are listing their homes at market value opposed to over pricing.  If a home is priced right it will sell.  It’s just a matter of time.
