That&rsquo;s good. The bad news is that the average price of those properties is down two-point-four percent from a year ago, falling to $205-thousand dollars.</p><p>The 351 new foreclosures in May probably won&rsquo;t help. Until the glut of properties on the market clears up, housing prices will remain low.</p> Thu, 05 Jul 2012 20:24:47 +0000 Todd Bookman 8230 at http://nhpr.org
