Home Sales on the Rise

by Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Inc. on July 30, 2010

The National Association of Realtors reported this week that home sales are up throughout the country. In June, sales of single-family homes are at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.7 million units. That is 8.5 percent above the 4.33 million pace in June 2009.

Locally, home sales are fairing even better. Through the first six months of 2010, homes sales are up 12.5% over the same period last year.

Across the nation, the median existing single-family home price was $184,200 in June, up 1.3 percent from a year ago. Here in Thurston County, the median price now stands at $229,950, which is down 5.3% from last year.
