The numbers Q2Number of Transactions

The major economic indicator pointing towards this difference in price is the number of Lakefront Homes transacted in this area, as well as locational premiums for lake access and proximity.

With a median sale price of $445,000, Historic Lakeshore Communities are, by both metrics, the highest valued area for Q2 2015.
