NORTH STATE BIA POSTS FEBRUARY SALES NUMBERS
ROSEVILLE - A total of 426 new homes were sold during February in the greater Sacramento region, the North State Building Industry Association reported today. The sales were reported in 140 subdivisions in the six-county Greater Sacramento region from Marysville and Yuba City in the north to Galt in the south. In addition, 9,742 people visited active new-home communities last month.
BIA President and CEO Michael Strech is encouraged that sales will continue to rise as we head into spring.
"We are excited to see the high sales numbers in February. Sales increased by more than 20 a week over January. Even more encouraging is the comparison in year over year sales. February saw 70 more sales than the same month last year and we expect to see numbers continue to increase." Strech said.
