In looking at the number of sales and the values of the properties it is easier to appreciate that some buyers may have been able to do a slight negotiation in price.  What's a few thousand dollars on a multi-million dollar purchase?

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS - Who could have imagined a year or two ago that the average home of $3.2 + million would have an average of 11 days on market.  This market is wild!
