Fannie Hillman increases first quarter sales
Despite a still struggling economy and an industry-wide existing home market that typically experiences a drop off in first quarter sales, Fannie Hillman + Associates posted 86 first quarter closings, which was 10.3 percent better than a comparable period last year. The company’s first quarter closings produced a volume of $25.9 million, highlighted by the sale of a $2.48 million home on Winter Park’s Lake Maitland. For the quarter, sales averaged $300,685, down 59 percent from last year’s first quarter average sale due primarily to the number of distressed properties included in its 86 transactions.
