Selling Price per Square Foot
The Selling Price per Square Foot is a great indicator for the direction of Property values. Since Median Sales Price and Average Sales price can be impacted by the 'mix' of high or low end Properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of Property values. The January 2012 Selling Price per Square Foot of $146 was down -3.9% from $152 last month and down -14.1% from $170 in January of last year.
