Iowa home sales up again

IOWA (KWWL)-- There is good news when it comes to home sales. Sales across the state jumped nearly five percent in September.

The Iowa Association of Realtors reports  2,922 homes were sold in September, that's up from 2,794 in August. September capped a solid third quarter, as well. Overall sales were up 9.5 percent. Houses were also on the market for fewer days. The September Housing Trends report did show a slight drop in average sales prices from this same time last year.

Realtors expect to finish the year strong, as the first-time home buyers tax credit incentive wraps up November 30.
