There were nearly 40% fewer homes going under contract last week than the same time last year, possibly as a result of the anticipated slowdown following the end of the federal tax credit incentive. There were 34 closings last week, down 23% from a year ago. The average sold price of $157,277 (median $149,200) was 99.2% of the asking price, 96.4% of the original list price.
