During the past 12 months 19,535 homes have sold, an 9% increase from the previous 12 month
period. Sales in November were 14% higher than during the same month a year ago.

All indicators continue to point to a housing market recovery.
Inventory is 30% lower than it was 2 years ago and at levels not seen since before the
housing boom. In addition, prices continue to stabilize and 
interest rates are at historically low levels.
further evidence of a stabilizing in prices.

Even though the winter months are historically a slower time for real estate sales, 
the absorption rate, or months supply of inventory, continues to fall across the board. 
Comparing inventory levels from May 2011 to now highlights how much the market has 
changed. In only 18 months, the market has shifted from a buyer’s to seller’s market 
across wide sections and ever higher price points in Hampton Roads.
