Home sales in 2014 decreased to 72 from 94 in 2013, and the Average Home Sale Price increased on average by $42,649. At the same time there were 37 fewer New Listings in 2014, 10 fewer Active Listings, and the price per home went up along with a total Dollar Volume decrease of $13,325,754. Along with the decrease in new listings, the attractiveness of the neighbourhood helped keep the prices up, and continually low interest rates also helped in this regard with the sale price. During the same period, the Average Number of Days on the market decreased to 27 from the 47 in 2013 which is quite good for home sellers, and the Percentage of Sold Price To Listing Price increased from 96% in 2013 to 98% in 2014.
