Sales selection criteria
In order for a sale to be included in the above statistics it must be an arm's length residential sale coded non-condominium. Further, the sale price must be greater than ten dollars and the number of days between the sale date and the contract date must be less than three hundred and sixty five or indeterminate.
The residential median sale price is calculated using all non-condo, arms-length sales from January 1st of any given year to January 1st of the following year. These sale prices are arrayed from lowest to highest. The middle value of the data set is the median sale price for that given year's data.
