December 2018, The Housing Market in Southwestern Michigan

Our housing market has had three remarkable years in a row. At the end of 2016, we set a new peak year for sales, total dollar volume and average and median selling prices. The previous peak year was 2006 in year-over-year comparison. Then the market in 2017 finished by outpacing 2016 even with a shrinking inventory of houses for sale.
