Home sales are down 32 percent in Ferguson since a policeman shot Michael Brown to death, compared with a 13 percent drop for all of St. Louis County, in what has been a down year for home sales across the region, according to an analysis by MORE Realtors.
“I was shocked when I pulled the data. It doesn’t really look that bad,” said Dennis Norman, a partner in MORE.
But it’s not a normal market in Ferguson. Eleven homeowners have pulled their homes from the market since the trouble began. None did that during the same period last year.
