January, 2015 – SWMI January Housing Sales Down While Selling Prices Set Record High
ST. JOSEPH, MI – "Due to a change in our method of reporting closed sales in our MLS system to improve accuracy, we may see some variances in data for the first few months of the year. However, this method will capture all of the sales regardless of when they are reported and will eliminate the need to provide the year-end revisions to the statistical reports. With January as the first month of the transition, housing sales appear to be down 12 percent when compared to last year in January. Twenty fewer houses were sold this past January after what was a rising number of sales during the month of January over the past three years," stated Gary Walter, EVP, of the Southwestern Michigan Association of REALTORS®, Inc.
