Pending Home Sales Up 10% Nationally and Locally month over month - Check out our graph!

The National Association of Realtors pending home sales index (these are the homes under contract or sale is pending) rose 10% from a month earlier.  This was an increase from September 2011 to October 2011.  The big reason was and still is the low interest rates for a mortgage. 

Interesting comparison was showing the same statistics for Beverly, Salem, and Peabody.  These three towns increased the same 10% as the National Average.
