Winter Season- December Newsletter

As we end this year and look to the new, we hope that you had a nice Christmas time and we wish you the best for the upcoming year! This month we celebrate 35 years of the D. W. Slater Company! In honor of 35 years, we have gone back to the original retro logo!

Median Sales Price

Days on Market

Months of Supply

Percent of Original Price
