BOSTON – Single-family home sales and the median price of those sales rose 9 percent in Bristol County, Mass. in January compared with the same month in 2012, The Warren Group said Tuesday.

The Boston-based real estate tracking firm reported 196 Bristol County houses sold in January, up from 180 in January 2012.

The $226,800 median price of those January sales increased from the $207,250 median in January 2012.

The Bristol County market followed the rest of Massachusetts, where statewide January sales rose 10 percent and the median sale price rose 7 percent year over year to $277,750.

“We ended 2012 on a pretty positive note, and this is carrying into January,” said The Warren Group CEO Timothy Warren Jr. “Recent pending sales data are a positive sign for a strong spring market. And given low mortgage rates and steady prices, there are positive signs that 2013 will be a second year of recovery.”

There were 34 condominiums sold last month, up from 31 in January 2012.
