Victoria Meadows in Oswego is located just north of Rt. 34 and West of Orchard Rd.  So far this year, only 1 home has sold in the first quarter.  That isn't much data to go on when comparing quarters- but if the trend continues, we are in for much longer market times.  Average market time for the...
