As the spring market moves forward in full swing, the Sterling market bucks the trend with fewer listings than April 2010. This is the result of fewer foreclosure properties in a market that was heavily dominated by those properties last year.
|April 2010||April 2011||% change|
|Avg. Sales Price||$331,281||$339,533||2.5%|
|Total Unit sales||132||108||-24%|
All indications are showing that the Sterling market will enjoy a steady increase in value. The loss of the Federal Income tax credit has had a definite influence on the number of sales, due primarily to the price range which is very favorable to 1st time buyers.
