Median Sales Prices
•    Up for the year by an average of 36%
•    This upward trend began in 2010 (Oakland), 2011 (Wayne), 2012 (Macomb)
•    Driven by market factors including historically low inventory levels

Inventory Levels
•    Down by 12% compared to last year
•    Levels have continued to diminish since August/September 2007
•    Driven by market factors including foreclosures largely out of system;
and individuals currently ‘under water’ on homes waiting for prices to
continue their rise

Days on Market
•    Down an average of 25 days over last year to [DAYS]  

Hot Markets in Metro Detroit
•    Troy & Canton area
•    Based on:
o    Most overall sales in past 12 months
o    Least amount of days on market in that same time period

In Months Ahead
•    Median sales prices expected to continue rise as economy improves and inventory levels work toward correction
•    Inventory levels should rise during Spring/Summer selling season
•    The next few months will be very telling as to whether the real estate market will continue its rise and resurgence to what is now approaching pre-recession levels
