For the month of August, 2013, strong demand for a limited supply of Fort Wayne homes for sale has seemingly outweighed higher mortgage rates in the housing market.

• Pending Sales were up 6.5 percent to 701.
• Inventory levels shrank 7.5 percent to 3,477 units.
• The Median Sales Price increased 4.6 percent to $115,000.
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 1.7 percent to 93.5.
• Months Supply of Inventory was down 17.6 percent to 5.6 month supply.
