NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY - For those thinking they missed out by waiting as the overall Median Closed Sales Price went up 27% to $204,308 from a year ago and our current median price rose 35% to $155,000, think again. We are still 41% off the peak median Closed Sales Price of $264,800 reached in June 2006. Builders cannot build new homes even near resale prices because of city impact fees, higher land costs when they can find buildable lots and higher material costs. So new homes will continue to lead the way in price appreciation.
