A bit of an improved week on the closings however there were 4 late reportings ~ one as far back as 08-05-10. Come on people….what is wrong with agents not being able to reports sales in a timely fashion…….

REO/Bank Owned homes and Equity Sales continue to dominate. The Short Sales remain strangely absent. I’m still thinking the government HAFA program has only made more of a mess of the Short Sale market. This program is now 5 months old. I would think that if it was everything they had it cracked up to be…the short sales would be dominating the closed sales in the market and they are not!
