Total Sales Year-To-Date Comparison 2008 / 2009

 

As you can see by the graph below total sales (as reported through the MLS system) are still down from 2008 by 18.8%; with residential sales being down about 16.9%.  Not too bad though, and hopefully that margin will continue to lessen through the end of the year as it has since the first quarter.
