I read an article about the prices in Edmonton being stalled (which to me generally denotes stopped/not working/dead). Then the writer went on to say that houses are:
• selling for near list prices
• not staying on the market long
• in strong demand
These are good things right?
Ending with this quote,
"Nothing is for sure" about real estate, but sales agents "are not concerned about the health and vitality of the Edmonton market," association president Marc Perras said in a statement.
"Buyers still have lots of choice." But sellers are encouraged by the reduction of sales waiting time. "And sale prices are typically close to the listed price," Perras said.
It makes me think writers need to get a thesaurus and get their adjective usage under control.
