Meanwhile, the number of ignored listings on the market also kept climbing. In total, there were 7,432 single-family homes on the market without offers by the end of June. This was up 4 percent from both May and last June.
GLVAR President Keith Lynam said in a news release that it's good for local homeowners "when prices are appreciating at a healthy pace like this and more homes are selling."
Lynam also noted that banks are finally doing more to address the issue of "too many abandoned homes" in the area by beginning to clear the pipeline of foreclosed homes that filled up heavily during the recession.
