Tri-county home sales has had double-digit growth for 2015. The trend should continue for 2016 but we will have to watch for affordability and availability. We had 16,202 sales in 2015 and the medium price is now at $229,000 for a 6.5 percent increase over 2014. Inventory and available homes will be a concern in 2016 with the new new industry growth. Best bet if you are buying is get a Certified and experienced buyer agent to represent your search.
