    Newly released data from Realtor.com for January shows that potential buyers and sellers in Tuscaloosa County saw houses sell for lower than the previous month's median sale price of $238,750.

    The median home sold for $214,500, an analysis of data from Realtor.com shows. That means January, the most recent month for which figures are available, was down 10.2% from December.

    Compared to January 2023, the median home sale price was up 2.1% at $214,500 compared to $210,000.

    Realtor.com sources sales data from real estate deeds, resulting in a few months' delay in up-to-date data. The statistics don't include homes currently listed for sale, and aren't directly comparable to listings data.

The average can be skewed by one particularly low or high sale.
