Southern California homes sold at the fastest pace for an April in seven
years amid the release of pent-up demand for move-up homes and high levels of

Home sales in the Phoenix region fell on a year-over-year basis for the third
month in a row during February as the foreclosure resale level dipped and the
overall supply of homes on the market remained tight. The median sale price rose

outstripping supply combined with the ongoing shift in the sales mix toward
fewer low-cost transactions and more mid- to high-end deals...
Seattle-area home sales hit a six-year high for the month of January, rising
above a year earlier for the 19th consecutive month. The median sale price fell

and perceived higher returns on investment...
The number of Golden State homes sold for a million dollars or more rose to its
