Baltimore County home sales were up in June 2010.

Baltimore home sales had not seen an increase in the past year, so this is great news.

From RealEstate Business Intelligence, Inc. through MRIS, the Metropolitan Regional Information Systems (our local MLS), the numbers show that the Baltimore County average sold price is up 8.25%!

The other very positive number is that the days on the market dropped 12.93% from 116 to 101 June 2009 to June 2010.

These statics are partly due to the Homebuyer Tax Credit, where buyers originally had to settle by the end of June to receive their credit.

573 Baltimore County homes went under contract in June 2010, and 681 homes sold. The good news is that those 573 homes that went under contract did not rely on the tax credit.

Here is the report for June Baltimore County home sales.

What the statistics tell me is that right now is a great time to sell a Baltimore County home. Prices are up, average days on the market are down, so the inconvenience is less.
