2012 Sales Results

The South Portland real estate market, like all markets across the country, is affected by many factors.  It is a relatively small market and often month-to-month results yield wide fluctuations.  Reviewing sales data cummulative YTD basis attempts to moderate the affects of seasonality, cyclicality and macroeconomics.

At this time although there has been no significant improvement in pricing, there has been an upsurge in activity during this winter.  The percentage of homes under contract is improving. In South Portland the balance between sales and inventory for single family homes is acceptable, while there is too much inventory available for condos.
