Now THESE Are The Graphs You Really Need To Know About

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Ever since I had basic Math prior to Algebra I in eighth grade, I have been fascinated by graphing. I think inherently it is becaue I am a visual person and when you graph information or numbers, it paints a truly vivid representation to you and THE NUMBERS JUMP OUT at you and their impact is unquestionable.

Within our blogging network of real estate professionals so many REALTORS do such a wonderful job with local market reports showing you trending on prices month after month, year over year, the amount of home inventory and even average days on market to sell a property. You will see graphs even on the percentage of distressed properties growing or declining in a certain town compared to a larger city nearby. All well and good and very relevant for each market area. REAL ESTATE IS LOCAL.

But my humorous self sees GRAPHS EVERYWHERE in life. Here is a sampling of late to perhaps let you appreciate and maybe SMILE just a little bit more in your day about how important all those numbers really are... it really is ALL ABOUT THE GRAPH. Enjoy and pass a smile on to another today will you???

Now those graphs are fun to study!  My guess is they are also pretty accurate.

Why'd you have to be so hard on NASA?  Gary, I haven't been to a wedding with an open bar in 20 years.  It's sad the times are changing and not for the better necessarily.  What a fun day!

GraphJam is a lot of fun. Someone needs to do one on how much time is spent looking at funny graphs at work.

I love the first one, "why you drink". Oh and the usefulness of each finger in traffic is a howl. Now that graphic REALLY tells the real story!

Excellent graphs in this market report! Stunning color levels, great visuals, witty humor!  I've seen this joke before so I was surprised when I saw them (it?).  The traffic graph I practice often & often at random.

Although I am also a visual person, I'm not a big fan of graphs and I hate map idx searches.  But I loved these graphs!  My favorite was the "tastes like chicken."
