Trulia is lagging behind because their information is taken from our local MLS. When I went into sales history the statistic are just now coming out for September. Remember all sales must be closed, reproted as sold by the listing agent and then compiled. This years peak sales were in June at 501. The good news is that this September was the best sales for that month since 2008.The median sales price is below $ 140,000 ....Distressed sales upward to 29% but that is so much lower than in the month of January which was accounting for 43% of total sales. Pending sales for this September were at 186...the year before it was 130. This is ancedotal and please do not take as fact, but from the way our phone has been ringing November / December are going to be very good.
