The July roundup of Spokane home prices was typical: mixed results such as a small increase in total sales, but a mild drop in prices.
Today's story touched on all that. The accompanying chart had me wondering if there's a pattern being established. Low prices in the first two or three months, followed by a peak in sales prices as activity increases, followed by a slump in home prices during the fall and winter.
Here's a chart of median prices of homes sold in Spokane in 2012, 2013 and this year so far. See if you see that trend as well.
