Figures released by the Central Virginia Multiple Listing Service show some localities enjoyed sales and prices for existing homes that were a little stronger but for most, the opposite was true.
Prices for existing homes in the region are still at the same level as five years ago.
1,299 existing homes were sold in the Tri-Cities in the first three months of this year. The average price was just over $222,000, total value $288.9 million.
Chesterfield County had a strong first quarter but was the exception with 99 more homes sold than the same time last year.
