Jeff you are right on about inventory levels. They are certainly a good measure of how easy it is to sell a property.

Hi Jeff, I was showing in this market yesterday. And have a another buyer for this market and the inventory doesn't seem to provide the choices that I expected even with the increased inventory. The drop in sales may also be a natural reflection of this.

Jeff ... I visited the Encinitas "Coaster" train station landing last week on my way to CAR.org business meetings in San Diego, walked to a local center and pub, visited with some friendly young folks there.  I wondered about your housing market there, so thanks for this update report.

Looks like you have changed your Encinitas photo a little (new frame?). Number of closings was down? We'll have to see if that's a trend next month.
