Our market activity continues to show signs of slowing as evidenced by an increasing absorption rate.

 Just a FYI ~ saw a news story this week that talked about the lack luster success of the latest government intervention into the housing market ~ the HAFA Short Sale Program. The program is now 8 months old and has only closed 400 short sales! Note to the government: Butt OUT!

Our market continues to cooling as our absorption rate continues a slow march up.

Here’s a note to buyer’s~~~just my opinion~~~you better make sure your agent knows the market! The highest priced Sold this week was a short sale all cash and again in my opinion that buyer paid about $100,000 over market value for it. I sure hope he couldn’t live without it!

Our market continues to show signs of slowing. Hard to say of it’s the holidays or the economy or a combination of both. The market is just not behaving as one would expect.
