home prices have increased $7,200 to $222,300 in
the last year -- about 3 percent -- but the numbers
of actual sales are down.
While prices are about the same, the inventory
is greater and homes are staying on the market
slightly longer than last year.

inventory will decrease this year. "We're starting
to see a turn for the better."
