While I love positive news on the market and is IS a local business. The numbers anymore may not be as "accurate" as some would lead you to believe. With the market "correction" over the last few years, many real estate agents have gone further from "home" to get sales; Many times a single house sale is being reported in the Central Penn MLS, the Keystone MLS and the RAYAC MLS system, So was it 3 sales or one? Until our region and others go to a state wide or national MLS system the numbers will not be accurate.
