There needs to be a disclaimer here. These stats are only as good as telling us what it being purchased and happening at a certain period in time. Additionally, it needs to be fully understood that not only is real estate local, but it is hyper-local. What this means is that the trends that we hear about are overall. Let's put it this way, what's happening in one neighborhood, may not be realized in the neighborhood next door. It is all relative and this has to be understood when utilizing these stats.
