- In May 2019, median price rose 6% year-over-year, driven by an increase in the market share of sales over $1 million versus last year.
- However, average sale price remained essentially flat, up 1% year-over-year, due to fewer deals at the top of the market over $4 million.
- Nevertheless, average price-per-square-foot still rose 3% year-over-year, due in large part to a 13% increase in pricing (per sq. ft.) for 3+ bedroom homes.

- The number of additional new listings increased 3% compared to last year and rose 12% compared to April 2019.
