NOTE: The Northwoods is a difficult market to report in terms of the broad range of home sizes, styles and price ranges. For example, the current listings are from $121,900 up to $215,000, a gap of $93,000, which is quite unusual. As is the median sales price in 2009 being $148,450 and then in 2010 being $226,950. This isn’t necessarily because home values have increased but rather because 3 of the larger and newer homes sold in 2010 and none on the smaller cheaper priced home did sell.
LESS SALES, SLOWER MARKET. It’s noteworthy that there were 8 sales in 2009 and only 3 so far into 2010.
