I am always asked by the public and clients what is going on with the market, especially during the winter months. They're surprised when I tell them the facts, that properties sell just as well in the winter time as they do in the summer.
January 1, 2008 to January 31, 2008 35 properties sold, average price was $230,000 with 188 days on the market. The majority of the solds were within $5,000 to $10,000 of the list price.
Winter Months December 2006-April 1, 2007 208 sold
Summer months April 2, 2007 to September 2007 355 sold
