The pie chart shows the breakdown of:

  • new active listings (homes that went on the market)
  • total active listings
  • closed listings
  • homes that have gone under contract

during the whole of 2012 for single family detached homes located within Holly Springs, NC.

The “1% Active” is confusing, yes… this percentage includes only those Holly Springs homes that entered the MLS as a for sale home before January 2012, and sat on the market through the duration of the year (a high % would be alarming).  At 1% this is great for home sellers and buyers (considering resale) alike.

While the pie chart is a little arbitrary by itself, we include it to help paint the full picture for the stats below.
