Peoria area home sales were up 3.8 percent in the first quarter, compared to the same time last year. That amounted to 954 houses or condominiums sales closed. 35 more than the first quarter of last year.
Becky Peterson is the president of the Peoria Area Association of Realtors. She says there was dip in home sales for February but March was strong.
“Just March alone compared to last March was 7.6% which put us on the good side for the quarter of the 3.8. So we’re very pleased,” Peterson said.
