Local real estate sales are seeing a modest improvement over last year.

New numbers released by the Sarnia Lambton Real Estate Board Thursday indicate 784 sales closed in the first six months of 2012 compared to 726 for the same period last year.

The value of those sales was up significantly, with a total dollar volume of $151.5 million this year, an increase of about $16 million over the first six months of sales in 2011.

Most of the houses sold in June this year were priced between $100,000 and $149,000.
