Terrace real estate sales are up

In 2012, more properties switched hands compared to 2011.

LAST YEAR’S real estate sales topped 2011 by $15.9 million with more properties switching hands and leaving fewer on the market by the year’s end.

In 2012, 318 properties sold for $65.9 million through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) compared to the 267 properties that sold in 2011 for $50 million.
