Feb. Market Report Issued

BERLIN — February existing home sales decreased slightly, but average and median price continued to rise, according to the Maryland Association of REALTORS®.

Units sold declined by 0.02 percent, eight homes, compared to February of 2013, while average price rose by more than $19,000, or 7.2 percent, and median price increased more than $17,000, a gain of 7.7 percent.

“It’s not surprising that February sales were essentially flat compared to last year, given that it was one of the worst months in a winter season of unusually harsh weather,” said MAR President Russ Boyce. “That accounts for the half-month increase in inventory and the dip in pending sales as well. But continued price increases indicate that consumer demand remains strong, and the spring selling season is likely to be robust.”

Maryland monthly housing statistics are compiled by data as reported by MRIS and the Coastal Association of REALTORS®. The data is available through www.mdrealtor.org
