Omaha Home Sales Up 17% in 2012 Over 2011

Nebraska Real EstateHome sales in 2012 in the metro area were up 17 percent over the year before. That’s good news for anyone planning on selling or even buying a home this next year.

More than 11,000 new and existing homes sold in the Omaha area last year. That’s the second highest number ever, second only to 2006, before the national economy screeched to a halt. New home construction in 2012 was up more than 15 percent over the previous year.

Amanda Worner moved into a growing neighborhood near 180th and Maple a little over a year ago and has noticed the progress. “The empty lots that we kind of saw when we first moved in, there weren’t a whole lot of other homes building. But now in the last year it’s really taken off.”
