Nothing Like a Pair of Chaps and a Big 'Ole Buckle Over the Package.

Or, why my market reports were late this month!

Actually, I am wading through the end-of-year numbers for Haywood County NC, including Maggie Valley and Waynesville, and two things come to mind:
  • It looks like our values will be close to 2004 values before the bleeding stops.
  • We have many overpriced homes/sellers in denial.
You can wander around the Haywood County real estate statistics/numbers here.

Susie, our prices are down to 2000 and in some places 1998. Our data shows the same amount are selling in Ann Arbor but for much lower prices. Good for the buyers but terrible for the sellers. 2004 sounds pretty good to me.

Missy, how do you get people out of denial?

Fernando, I agree. Until there are jobs on the horizon and sales aren't dependent upon government loans, it's all fluff.

Connie, we are warming up a bit today which is nice for a few outside chores I need to do.

Our sales are matched to 2000 but our listings are at 2004 levels so we see a discrepancy between listings to sales. But I think we are slowly coming back in Spokane. Where is your post on packaging? or was this it:]
