Here’s my breakdown of the recent headlines about our median sale price.
It’s the end of April, and another article has come out that gives a lot of us heartburn. The headline reads, “Median Home Prices Exceed $600,000 for the First Time in Salt Lake County.”
Essentially, the article explains that in the last 12 months, we’ve seen our median home price rise almost 26%. A home that was $500,000 last year is worth over $600,000 right now. Today I wanted to offer some context for the data.
