According to the latest MIBOR Monthly Indicators Report of Broker Listing Cooperative® data released today, pending and closed sales as well as median and average sales price rose in the July through September comparisons of 2011 to 2010.

Closed sales were up 24.1 percent in the third quarter compared to the same time period last year. Both Median and average sales Prices rose 4.1 percent in the quarter, consistent with the price stability seen all year.
