Bakersfield home prices dip inexplicably

Bakersfield Californian Real Estate - Thu, 03/01/2012 - 03:32

The price of an existing single-family home in the Bakersfield area was $119,975 in February, according to the Preliminary Crabtree Report, a monthly guage of the local real estate market produced by Affiliated Appraisers. That's down 7.7 percent from January and down 4 percent from a year earlier.
