The month's median price for a single-family residence shot up to $795,000, a 3.3% jump over June's then record-setting $769,450.
September's average price settled at $884,196, just an inch below the record-breaking $885,281 high set in June of this year.
Prices paid for condominium residences also set new records with $488,438 settling as the highest-ever monthly average price with an accompanying record-breaking median of $390,000. Both figures eclipsed previous records by 10.4% and 5.1%, respectively.
Thus far 2017's year-over-year single-family home prices reached new average highs of $856,863 while the median price is at an all-time high of $754,500. Condominium values for the year also remain at record highs with an average of $414,062 and a median of $362,000.
