Selling Price per Square Foot

Selling Price vs Original Listing Price
The Selling Price vs Original Listing Price reveals the average amount that Sellers are agreeing to come down from their original list price.

The February 2015 Selling Price vs Original List Price of 97.8% was up from 96.6% last month and up from 96.9% in February of last year.
