Clarkston MI Home Sales Data

Clarkston MI home sales ontinue to rise- both in unit sales and price. The amount of distressed sales continues to decline and houses are selling within a few per cent of asking price on average.

Over the next few weeks, I will be blogging about Clarkston area sales in more detail and those blog posts will display at the bottom of this page.
