How’s The Market?

Here are the most recent numbers from the Regional Multiple Listing Service’s “Market Action” report that comes out mid-monthly and is e-mailed to all member Realtors®. This is data specific to our market, and drills down into particular cities and neighborhoods so it’s much more accurate than the national and regional reports you find in most media reports.


New listings, at 2,759, increased 12.9% from February 2019 (2,444) and rose 0.2% from January 2020 (2,754).

Below is a table with data for specific areas. Note that Appreciation is based on a comparison of the rolling average sale price for the last 12 months with the 12 months prior. Days on Market is the number of days from when a property is listed until an offer is accepted on that same property. If a property is re-listed within 31 days, DOM continues to accrue; however, it does not include the time that it was off the market.
