There were 776 single family home sales in March, a 7.3 percent year-over-year increase, according to a report released by the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors yesterday.
This is even more impressive considering the 2010 numbers were bolstered by the federal government’s income tax credit for first-time buyers.
Still, not all areas of the report were sunny. Home sales year-to-date are down 4.2 percent compared to 2010, and housing prices were weak, despite the monthly uptick in sales. The average sales price last month was $211,426, a 1.9 percent dip from $215,625 in March of 2010.
