Selling Price per Square Foot


3 Mo Avg
Selling Price per Square Foot 400
Average Selling Price per Square Foot for properties that sold during the month

The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for


the direction of Property values. Since Median Sales 350
Price and Average Sales price can be impacted by the
'mix' of high or low end Properties in the market, the 300
selling price per square foot is a more normalized
indicator on the direction of Property values. The 250
September 2010 Selling Price per Square Foot of $210 210
201
was up 12.3% from $187 last month and up 16.2% from 200 180
