Stock Developments sales report for the first quarter of 2013 shows a month-by-month increase in both units sold and dollar volume. According to figures released this week by the company, 149 new home contracts were signed totaling $ 90.01 million.

Brian Stock, CEO of Stock Development, said sales grew each month with March registering 60 sales worth $ 38.4 million across nine communities in Southwest Florida.
