2013 Starts Off Strong for Sellers: Home Prices & Sales Both Way Up


Home sales got off to a strong start this year, rising 12 percent from a year ago and marking the strongest January in at least four years. Prices were up as well, 10 percent higher than January 2012, while listings continued to struggle, losing more than a third from last year’s already anemic level. Meanwhile, the percentage of homes that were under contract within two weeks of their debut shot up from 26 percent in December to 30 percent in January—the highest point since we began tracking this number in January 2010.
