Hi Jeff, it is particularly encouraging to see the sales up and inventory being a bit less ( may be seasonal ) that could eventually be realized in the form of slight increases in value. This market has been hit so hard with foreclosures and it needs time to recover but even little gains point in the right direction.

It sounds like the Oceanside market is holding it's own and maybe seeing some signs of stabilization?

I so appreciate your comments separating media reports versus market reports.  Many consumers would have a "change of heart" if they looked at the numbers more closely.

Jeff, it's good to see your market doing so well in Oceanside.  Interesting your sale/list % is about what we see here in the Triangle too.  Here's to a strong 4th quarter finish for all of us!!
