Median Price

Price per Square Foot

Despite recently falling prices, the price per square foot has stayed reasonably flat. This implies that there’s a portion of the market being priced at a premium. You can investigate this condition in the quartile details.


Inventory has been relatively steady around these levels in recent weeks.
