Hi Ed, very general question as you aren't comparing ranches to ranches, 3 bedrooms to 3 bedrooms etc.. But for 2012 there were a total of 204 re-sale (not REO or short sale) closings in Wantagh with an average value of $406,958. REO's on the other hand show only two closings in Wantagh last year for an average price of $364,772 ($284,544 & $464,900). I wouldn't draw many conclusions from the data though due to the paucity of REO closings.
