“The median price, where 50 percent sold above or below, is up 11 percent from last year,” said Dave Dalzell, association president.

“We sold more of the middle income, middle-priced range, during the month of May that we had been earlier in the year,” Dalzell said. “Those homes between $120,000 and $180,000 were the dominant sales.”
