Well, here we are. One of the busiest months of summer. AUGUST. The number of homes sold for the month certainly reflect this month. The number of sales for the Month was up 6%. We went from 129 sold last year for the month of August to 138 sold this year for the month of August. Love to see Good News!
The average sale price of homes sold for the Month of August was $150,000 for 2011, down 9% from August 2010 which was $165,000 - VERY BAD NEWS.
However, it was not so bad that it brought the average sale price down to much for the year. Year to date our prices have dropped 4% and the number of homes sold has dropped 4% from this same point for last year.
Granted, we do not want to see these "dropped" numbers but we all know they could be worse.
So we shall thank our lucky stars we are where we are and hope that next month does not drop also.
Stay tuned to my Blog for more stats as they become available. Thank You!
