Selling Price per Square Foot

Selling Price per Square Foot
The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for the direction of Property values.

The January 2012 Selling Price per Square Foot of $387 was up 2.3% from $379 last month and up from 0 in January of last year. 1,200 1,000 800 600 400 200 0
