SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico saw a 13.9% drop in the number of homes sold in April compared with the same month last year.

The group says Santa Fe County saw a 34% wallop in April as the novel coronavirus took a bite out of homebuyers’ and sellers’ appetites.

Bernalillo County’s sales fell 18.3%, San Juan County’s slid 15.8% and booming Sandoval County’s eased downward 5.5%.

Meanwhile, median home prices across New Mexico climbed 7.38% compared with the same period last year to $225,500 in April.
