2012 was a very strong year of homes sales with an overall increase of 7.75%. Additionally, the busiest month of the year was July with 86 total closed sales. This is the highest number of homes sold during the month of July since 2007. These strong home sales numbers are being driven by a combination of a healthy local market and record low interest rates as well as the increased demand in the market from those who have been waiting to purchase a home. During the first half of 2012, there were 326 homes sold as compared to 369 homes sold in the second half. However, there has been a significant decrease in actual inventory of homes for sale. In July, 2012 there were 336 homes on themarket as opposed to January, 2013 with only 244 homes for sale. If you are thinking of making a move, now is a great time to list your home! The housing inventory is low and there are many qualified buyers anxious to take advantage of these low interest rates.
As a top producing agent on the Northshore my track record speaks for itself. In 2012 I closed over 100 transactions totaling almost $23 Million in sales. As a local market expert and experienced listing agent, I can market your home and get it SOLD! If you are considering a move, call me today as I am looking forward to an even better 2013!
