Bill, some areas did experience a BIT of a slowdown but doesn't look like Southshore did much.  The actives are on the market longer than the closed sales.

Hi Joan... people think higher rates pull buyers back... well, they do pull some back. But they also enthuse many buyers to purchase sooner rather than later to lock in rates before they rise further.

Nina Hollander, Broker that is true, but our average sales price has creeped up pretty high, so some of these prices are that far off average.

Joan Cox these days, it's hard to define "normal." It's also hard to define "average." :)))
