A plunging stock market and waning consumer confidence dragged Birmingham-area home sales down in October, a real estate expert says.
Tom Brander, who compiles a monthly statistical report on Birmingham residential real estate, noted in his blog that the value of area homes sold last month dropped by more than a third. He said the figure was surprising and the steepest his data has shown since he began tracking sales in 1999.
