Sales volume for homes sold in the Big Apple last quarter reached its highest level since 2007 — $11.3 billion. That’s a 38 percent increase from the second quarter and a 32 percent jump from third-quarter 2012. Total home sales in the five boroughs stood at 14,073, up 28 percent on an annual basis, and the average sales price of a home rose 3 percent year over year to $806,000.

The Real Estate Board of New York attributed the increase in sales volume to rising mortgage rates and high, unflagging residential rents pushing more buyers off the fence into homeownership.
