February 2015, SWMI February Housing Sales Up Despite the Weather, Median Selling Price Up 20%
ST. JOSEPH, MI – "Ruthless weather in the first two months of the year can play havoc with housing sales. Last year, January sales were higher than February and this year it was the opposite. February housing sales were up 18 percent (170 vs 144) over January. Compared to February 2014, this year February housing sales were up 12 percent (170 vs. 152). Combine the two months, year-to-date we sold just 2 fewer houses this year versus last year," stated Gary Walter, EVP, of the Southwestern Michigan Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
January, 2015 – SWMI January Housing Sales Down While Selling Prices Set Record High
ST. JOSEPH, MI – "Due to a change in our method of reporting closed sales in our MLS system to improve accuracy, we may see some variances in data for the first few months of the year. However, this method will capture all of the sales regardless of when they are reported and will eliminate the need to provide the year-end revisions to the statistical reports. With January as the first month of the transition, housing sales appear to be down 12 percent when compared to last year in January. Twenty fewer houses were sold this past January after what was a rising number of sales during the month of January over the past three years," stated Gary Walter, EVP, of the Southwestern Michigan Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
