Ed that is a big difference in the number of sales one year to the other.  I am assuming it is due to very low inventory.

Hi Ed... I can't remember the last time I saw 60 days on market in my area... any home that sits that long probably has something wrong with it or is overpriced. And even with the longer DOM it's a seller's market in terms of inventory.

HI Ed- your stats are a reminder of two things: all real estate is local and it is still a seller's market!!!
