N.H. home sales up from a year ago
New Hampshire home sales are doing much better than a year ago.
The New Hampshire Association of Realtors said the number of residential sales in October – 1,371 – was 6 percent above sales in October 2012.
The median price has risen 6 percent as well, from $201,900 in October to $213,800 in 2013.
Condominium sales in New Hampshire took a big leap in October, up 40 percent from October 2012 and 20 percent year to date. Median sale price was ahead by 5 percent in October and 8 percent year to date. Volume was up 46 percent in October, 28 percent year to date.
“We’re simply in the midst of a healthy market,” said Bill Weidacher, 2013 association president. “As a state, we’ve been climbing steadily for two years.”
The association noted that the average number of days a house is on a market is down. Pending sales are ahead, as well as the time it would take to sell off the current inventory of homes at the current pace of sales.
