This is a little bit of a surprise, from the Warren Group:
A total of 3,902 single-family homes sold in November, down from 3,983 in November 2012. This is the first time that home sales posted a decrease and the fewest number of sales recorded for a month since April. Even so, year-to-date sales are up more than 6 percent. A total of 45,979 sales have been recorded, up from 43,222 during the same period last year.
Needless to say, prices continued to climb for both single-family homes and condos, which continued to see an increase in overall sales last month.
