The National Association of Realtors released new existing home sales data and median home price data yesterday.
According to NAR's numbers, existing home sales in the US West region, which includes Colorado, were flat, comparing December 2011 to December 2012. This is the smallest increase of the four regions measured. For example, home sales in the Midwest were up 18.9 percent during the same period. All other areas, and the nation overall showed increases of more than ten percent.
Most of the sales growth appears to be in the midwest and northeast as can be seen in the graph:
Home sales totals continue to be held back by declining inventory.
