  1. Hi Tim. What is the comparison of new home sales in Parkesburg for this year compared to 2012 or 2011?

    • I ran reports of settled NewCon properties in TREND for each time period. They showed 8 properties in 2011, 3 properties in 2012, and 0 currently for 2013. TREND reports total sales (combined new and resale) in the borough were 31 in 2011, 39 in 2012, and currently 21 YTD for 2013. The numbers provided by TREND MLS are deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
