Housing market sees positive numbers

(KTHV) -- Both the numbers of houses sold and the median price for sales grew in the Little Rock/North Little Rock market from June 2010 to June 2011.

But nationally, the numbers aren't as promising. The National Association of Realtors says home sales fell 0.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.77 million homes. Economists say that's far below the 6 million homes per year that must be sold to sustain a healthy housing market.

"It's just a beautiful place to live. Little Rock is a wonderful place. We have a lot of stuff to do. It keeps growing," says Joel Tvedten, owner of River Rock Realty.
