The last four months of 2012 we’re amongst the slowest for our real estate market in the last 15 years. What we’re witnessing is a return to a balanced residential market indicated by prices remaining unchanged or down slightly compared to a year ago, stable inventory levels and the average length of time to sell a home is about two months.”
