Hi Terrie:  According to your "average list price", your prices are going up there just like here in California.  People keep asking where the bottom of the market is and I tell them, it was a year ago!!!!

Terrie:) Looks like your market is stabalized and most likely headed upwards.  I like the way you are keeping your area stats for residents to see that now is the time to buy before prices go up.

Wishing you the best in 2010!
