The number of homes sold in New Hampshire rose by eight percent in the first quarter of 2013 compared to the same time period last year.

The data released this week also shows homes are selling at slightly higher prices.

Median homes prices rose 4 percent compared to last year’s first quarter.

That median price – about $195,000.

New Hampshire Association of Realtors President Bob Weidacher called the growth slow, but said things are improving.

Seven of the state’s ten counties saw their home sale prices rise.

Condominium sales are trending at even higher rates, with unit sales up by 18 percent for the period.

And their median price is up by 10 percent.
