Home Prices Increasing

Posted by Larry & Lori Porter USN Retired on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 at 1:16pm.

Home sales declined in January to their lowest rate in nine months while home prices increased, the NAR said.

Sales of previously owned homes dropped 4.9% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.82 million in January, the lowest sales volume since April. The median price of a house in January increased 6.2% to $199,600 year over year, according to the NAR. Inventory is to blame.

Low inventory is measured by the number of houses available for sale. Total housing inventory at the end of January increased 0.5% to 1.87 million, but that is still 0.5% lower than a year ago, when it was 1.88 million, according to NAR. Please feel free to comment on our BLOG!!!!!
