The first month of 2011 has passed us by and here are some real estate statistics for January 2011 vs. January 2010.
Number of Waterfront home closings: Down 10%
Number of Off-water home closings: Up 17%
Number of Waterfront condo sales: No change from 2010
Number of Off-water condo sales: No change from 2010
Number of Total closings lakewide for all properties: up .05%
This is the first January since 2006 that the Lake area has seen increased transactions over the prior year:
January 2006: 195 closings
January 2007: 184 closings
January 2008: 107 closings
January 2009: 83 closings
January 2010: 74 closings
January 2011: 77 closings
These may not yet be all the closings for January 2011, due to the recent heavy snow storm and the inability of some office staffs to record sales for the last few days. If there are any changes, we will update this post.
