    Houses increase 9K while condo drop 9K. This is a surprise since typically increases or decreases don’t deviate this much with the two types of properties. What happened here Sara?

    Just weekly numbers that never add up or can be verified.

    When do you mark a property “SOLD” in MLS? When its IN PENDING? If the possession date is the “SOLD” day, then summer state could be 3-4 months behind?

    Sales: The number of listings marked sold in the past week. A number of “sold” listings will not get counted each week because REALTORS® have two days to report a sale. For example, if a listing is sold on Thursday, but not reported until Saturday it will not appear in any weekly report since my snapshot occurs on a Friday and includes only sales that occurred and were reported in the past seven days. The assumption is that the percentage of unreported sales is fairly steady (I have tracked this number on a monthly basis for a few years and it is quite consistent).

    Hi, just wondering what the average price per square foot was in December for single family homes.
