Off-water home sales are up 21%. Condo sales are up 13%. On the flip side, the number of sales for commercial property, lots/land, and farms has declined.
Foreclosure sales are up for 2010. 11% of all waterfront sales were foreclosures. Off-water home sales were 39% foreclosures. 18% of condo sales were foreclosures.
