November home sales cracked 200 in Cumberland and Dauphin counties, but it was not enough to keep pace with last year's monthly total, according to figures released this week from the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors.
Cumberland County notched 202 sales for the month, which was down from 242 in November 2012, the association said. The median sale price was $180,000, up from $173,950 last year.
In Dauphin County, November home sales totaled exactly 200, which was a decline from 213 last year, the association said. And the median sale price dipped to $140,450 compared with $143,000 in November 2012.
However, both counties are still ahead of last year's pace through 10 months. Cumberland County home sales totaled 2,717 through November, which was up from 2,410 last year, while Dauphin County has 2,425 compared with 2,277 under its belt.
The entire Central Penn Multi-List Inc. coverage area, which includes Perry County and portions of several other counties, including northern York County, finished November with 594 home sales, the association said. That was down from 656 last November.
The area's median sale price was $154,950 compared with $159,900 in 2012.
