Traditionally January is the usually the slowest month of the year for home sales so it is a little early to draw any conclusions from this data. One thing I will be watching closely this year are bank owned sales and new home sales. I am predicting a decrease in foreclosures this year and in January 2014 there was one less bank owned sale than were sold in January 2013. During this same time there were 5 less new homes sold than last year.
