Those records pushed first half 2018 sales to 1,612, up 25.8 percent from 1,281 during the same six-month period in 2017. 

The average sale price was $177,395, up 8.2 percent from $163,808 in 2017.

Within the ten-county region, homes spent 121 days on the market in June 2018, up only one day from June 2017.

The association’s data is based on its Multiple Listing Service, which represents about 85 percent of total sales in the market; it does not capture sales by owners or some sales of new construction by builders.
