On the real estate front, Marshfield is showing positive signs of market improvement. Perhaps not January 2011 over January 2010, but we closed out 2010 with some positive trends.  In this past January we saw 13 single family homes sell at an average sales price of $402,173 taking an average of 195 days to close on a transaction.  In the same period one year earlier, we saw 20 homes sell at an average sales price of $444,372 in an average  of 107 days until a transaction close.  However these don’t seem like very favorable comparisons, the mean sales price showed nominal price improvement edging up nearly $360,000.
