The new year is here, and we are all anxious to see how the real estate market will be. In 2011 in Manchester CT, we saw a decrease in both total closed sales and median price. The big question now is: Will 2012 be a better year for real estate?
In Manchester CT, we are starting off with positive results for both number of closed sales, median price, average price, and list price/sales price ratio.

|Summary||January 2012||January 2011|
|Median LP/SP Ratio||96.8%||94.8%|
