LOS ANGELES (AP) — Home prices and sales dipped in California from year-ago levels as “short sales” and sales of foreclosed homes accounted for more than half of home resales in the state.
San Diego-based DataQuick Information Systems said Thursday that the median price paid in the state last month was $244,000, down 2 percent from $249,000 in February 2010.
The median is up about 2 percent from $239,000 in January.
Home sales in February dipped nearly 3 percent to about 27,300 from around 28,100 in February 2010. Sales were down over 1 percent from 27,700 in January.
Foreclosures made up more than 40 percent of last month’s sales.
