January 2014 Housing Market

As strong winter storms hit, January saw a decline in home sales although home prices continue to rise. The RE/MAX National Housing Report noted the median home price for January 2014 was $173,475; 11.6% higher compared to January 2013.

Due to the storms, numerous delays, and cancellations in closing, home sales were down by 7.1%. However, home prices are on the rise and the market is preparing for strong spring and summer months.
