Positive News in in Bold

3.  Distressed sales were unchanged this month.  Short Sales were 1% of the total sales this month.  Record high 01/12 23%.  REO sales were 2%.  Record High 12/10 at 40%. That makes 3% of the sales “distressed” this month.  Record high was 12/10 at 61%  A distant memory!  Chart A42

8.  New Construction Median price up this month – $334,164.  This is up 8% from last month; and a 16% increase from this same month last year.  Big swings in new construction stats since we are dealing with such small numbers of houses sold!  Chart A9
