Des Moines Real Estate Stats 1-6-2012

Des Moines Real Estate Week In Review Ending January 6th, 2012

It’s a new year and I’ve adjusted my charts a bit for 2012.  I’ve also added a couple of extra stats at the bottom of this report including a current Pending count and a comparison of if we are ahead of or behind last year to date in closed transactions.  Numbers appear pretty light this week but we are coming off of a holiday weekend.. so that taken into account, we are actually starting the year off quite strong!
