Susie - those are some significant DOM stats. Are you trending up or down at this point?

That's a MAJOR average price drop! I hadn't even noticed the DOM until I saw Jeff's comment. But ours are about the same. I haven't done my year-end stats yet. I need to get on it!

Very representative for the rest of the country. .. if you wan to sell, you need to compete with the foreclosures and short sales. . otherwise you are sitting for a long time

Jeff I am working on Waynesville numbers as well as the County numbers ... more details to follow! Quicksand.

Lisa, it's hard to want to do numbers these days.

Fernando, we STILL, believe it or not, have many sellers in denial.

Michael, I agree.
