real estate: Decline in real estate sales greater than stated? - 02/16/11 06:40 AM
Statistics published by the National Association of Realtors appear to overstate sales of existing homes by 15 to 20 percent, mortgage and property data aggregator CoreLogic says in a new report that concludes home sales fell more sharply last year than previously thought. Rest of the story
I think the important point to look at is whether the factor the NAR uses to estimate off MLS sales is still valid.  It may or may not be,  only NAR statisticians know for sure.

real estate: Home sales rebound in December? - 01/29/09 03:10 PM
Yes, a little.
From IAR:
Home sales rebound in December compared to November. According to IAR's latest report, December home sales were up 7.38 percent to 6,590 units sold compared to November 2008 totals of 6,137; sales were down 17.5 percent from December 2007.
This is in all of Illinois.  Even in normal years, we don't see an increase in sales from a November to a December, so it's quite interesting to see this.  I looked at the McHenry County stats for 2006, 2007, and 2008 and every one of those years sales in December are lower than in November.
