GLAR releases monthly statistics mid-month to allow for the most accurate and comprehensive reporting possible. Local realtors report their residential sales totals to GLAR, and publishing the statistics mid-month allows for the activity that takes place late in the month to be counted. This ensures that the totals reported show the truest depiction of the local housing market.
