The number of homes sold in Somerville leveled off in April after a strong beginning to the year.
On the year, home sales in Somerville are still up when compared to 2011. During the first four months of 2012, 117 single-family homes and condos sold; that number was 85 in 2011.
It's important to note the figures do not reflect the number of two- and three-family homes in Somerville, which, together, represent about 51 percent of the housing stock in the city, according to numbers from a 2011 tax assessors report.
While Somerville had a flat month, across the state home sales rose in April. There was a 22 percent increase in the sale of single-family homes this April, as compared to April of 2011, and there was a 12 percent increase in condo sales, according to The Warren Group.
