Things are headed in the right direction! Monthly Market Details form December of 2012 show a 15.8% increase in closed sales over December 2011. In addition, new pending sales went up a whopping 31% over that time last year.
Perhaps the best news for homeowners is a 17% rise in average sale price– jumping from $208,955 in Dec. 2011 to $244,534 in Dec. of 2012. Buyers who were on the fence, take notice!
So what do all these numbers tell you? It seems now is a great time to start the search, or to finally consider that move you wanted.
