Final prices ranged from $75,000 to $256,000 reflecting the wide range in condition and amenities available.

In 2014 year to date prices have risen with 9 completed sales averaging $199,000. Once again, we are seeing a wide range of final sales prices from $70,000 to $250,000. The average days on the market has also fallen to 51. In addition, there are 3 properties under contract with an average asking price of $182,000 and 8 properties active on the market with an average list price of $235,000.
