November saw 14 sales of SFHs, taking the YTD total to 211. This makes 2012 already the largest sales year since 2005. The moving average in the chart clearly shows the recovery to more normal sales levels.

The chart is hard to read, but in the years 1994-2000 sales were between 262 and 286 in 6 of the 7 years.
