Birmingham, AL Real Estate Market Improving

According to Tom Brander’s Alabama Real Estate Market Trends website the Birmingham, Alabama area was 6% ahead of last year in dollar Top 5 Hoover Alabama Neighborhoods sales as of mid year. In addition to an increase in total dollar sales there has been an increase in the number of homes sold, including new homes, over last year. Is this a sign that our market has fully recovered?
