beavercreek homes: Appreciation in The Dayton Market - 12/11/07 10:44 PM
I thought this was interesting information on the single family home appreciation in the Dayton Market. 
The chart below shows the average sale prices, dollar appreciation, percentage and cumulative appreciation for single-family homes in the Dayton area from 1973 to 2006.
