April home sales

The sales drop ranged from 27 percent in Baltimore County to 42 percent in Carroll, which has really been taking a pummeling. Prices fell the most in Carroll, down 7.6 percent on average. Every other jurisdiction in the area saw tiny-to-modest price drops except Baltimore, where average prices rose 3.7 percent. (But the city's median price fell, which just goes to show that it depends on what you're measuring.)
The number of unsold homes is again on the rise. That's probably to be expected, because a number of agents mentioned in the winter months that they had clients planning to put their properties on the market in the spring.
Thoughts about the market? As always, chime in.
