ó In December, the median price decreased to $315,000 compared to $325,000 in November.

* The homes that are priced right, show well and have a high quality marketing plan are getting sold quickly. However, the properties that are over priced are sitting with little activity until the list price is in line with the true market value. The overpriced properties are having price reductions to try and get more attention. I’m calling it a “price sensitive sellers market.”
