Best January since 2007
2015 was off to a good start with the most home sales for a January since 2007, just prior to the Global Financial Meltdown – a total of 475. January was also the ninth straight month in a row in which area home sales outstripped those of the previous year. "Bear in mind that last year's Polar Vortex put January 2014's home sales in a bit of a deep freeze," cautions LSTAR President Carl Vandergoot. "That's part of the reason this month's figures look so robust."
