Ocala area home sales were up from September which was an off month. Actually October sales were more in line with what has been the average so far this year. The total number of active listings went up just a few units but an increase in active listings has been a trend over the past several months. Foreclosures seem to be down from past months. Short sales always seem about the same. I saw a recent article in a real estate newsletter that said foreclosures aren’t a very good deal when compared to traditional sales now that prices are down so low. I think that’s especially true when you factor in the home’s condition.
