Peggy this is in line with several market reports that I have read for April.  Why do you think sales were down in April when that is usually a good month?

Peggy -- I had the same in one of my reports. It's up then down then up then down -- we're still seesawing a bit in some towns.  Sales should be looking good for May, though.  Manchester pendings look solid.

Peggy - it looks like prices are indeed picking up a little up there in what my mother used to refer to as God's Country. Do you sell in Gurleyville as welll??? That is where we lived before Florida - on Cod Fish Falls Rd.
