The weather in our fair city has yet to improve but our market has this week. For the first time this year we have come within striking distance to last years sales numbers. Because of our solid sales week, the sales to list ratio made a 12 point recovery, and 3 weeks was shaved off of the absorption rate. Values fell in both condo and single family home prices, and average days on market experienced reduction this week. All is all not a bad start, and I anticipate this momentum to "spring" us forward to a healthy market year! Make sure you come back on the first of April for the monthly statistics wrap up for March. Thanks for stopping by!
