    Neal Johnson, 2017 CFR President responded to the data:

    We continue to see strong demand for homes in our area and this is very exciting.  A strong housing market is closely related to the nation’s economy and American’s confidence in our economy.  

    The CFR* Market average home sales price hit a nine year high of $274,150 in May 2017, which was 5.6% greater than that in May of 2016, and the sales units were up 18.9% to 968. From January to May 2017 (YTD) numbers are just as fascinating when compared to the same period in 2016. Total sold units were up 19.7%, average sales price was up 4.4%, total sales volume was up 25.21%, and average days on the market dropped 13.2% to 89 days. view details >>
