This week I've been working on some web pages and blog posts for a San Diego website - so I started doing some research. I was looking for statistics about foreclosures, short sales, pricing, etc.
Imagine my surprise when I found these two results on Google - one above the other:
I was even more surprised when I read the two posts and found that they were both correct!
One writer focused on the difference between 2nd and 3rd quarter 2010. The other focused on the difference between 3rd quarter 2009 and 3rd quarter 2010.
So... it all depends upon the message the writer wanted to convey.
Darn writers anyway...
