portland maine real estate: Cape Elizabeth Maine Housing and Condo stats for December 2008 - 01/09/09 05:34 AM
Cape Elizabeth Maine real estate remains quiet with 5 transactions occurring in December 08 at an average sold price of 538K. Comparing this to 10 transactions at an average price of 497K in December 2007 one actually sees a year over year price increase of 8% although this number s probably skewed by a high value home selling coupled with a small sample size.
