Housing Stats Offer Mixed Message
According to the St Joseph Regional Association of Realtors, there were 66 units sold last month in the nine-county area, down from 73 homes sold in January, 2012.
But they were worth over $8.1 million, compared to $7.78 million in sales reported January of 2012.
Those numbers are dramatically higher than home-sales figures from January, 2011, when just over five milion dollars in home sales were reported.
Last month’s data represents a 9.59% decrease in units sold, but a 4.96% increase in the value of those homes.
