Nationally and Locally Home Prices are down but Sales are UP!! Take a peak at the NAR report.

As we have been indicating in our Housing Market Charts,  home prices on average are down approximately 4% across Essex County and that is consistent with the North East in general.  Home Sales are up from a year ago which is farily consistent with Essex County.  Some towns such as Beverly, Middleton, and Topsfield are up in both price and units.  Take a look at the National Assocation of Realtors stats for the entire United States.  Happy House Hunting!!
