Great news to share! Amanda Howard Real Estate had a record breaking month in April for real estate closings with 49 transactions! This included 24 buyers (6 new construction) and 19 sellers.
Statewide, Alabama residential sales for the first quarter gradually continued to improve, with a slight increase compared to the same period last year. Total sales of 9,120 units represent the BEST first quarter since 2008-that’s 6 years!
First quarter sales in 2014 increased by nearly 10 percent from the most recent 3-year average and close to 13 percent from the 5-year quarterly average.

The statewide median sales price during the first quarter was $122,132, which is an increase of over 6 percent from the same quarter in 2013.
