How about that for an SEO Title?
April continued the trend of “we don’t know anything” from one month to the next. In January, sales were lousy, but price was decent. In February, sales were again lousy, as in really lousy, but price was outstanding. Additionally, listing volume continued to be lower than expected. Then came March. March had pricing go down to where it was in January (sigh) but saw a 7% increase in closings over the tax-credit fueled March 2010 (hurrah!).
In other words, predicting the market is like predicting when it will snow next in Colorado. Good luck.
Here is the info:
On a side note… April marks the Five Year Anniversary of the Stat Pack. I was either the first real estate goober to start obsessively tracking the market (be glad my blog wasn’t around for my 13 page July 2007 edition…) or the last one of the first adopters still standing, but I do not think there is a market report with 60 consecutive months and four consecutive annual reports worth of real estate data tracking the local marketplace. Not to say that term of length makes this any more relevant, just saying. I’m happy this project has gone on five years. Thanks for reading it.
