As per kaleetan's comment...

This is an interesting trend.

Is this 1% drop related to the drop in interest rates during early fall?

I am under the impression that there is a significant hiring spree currently going on by employers drawing well paid, educated, rich, out of staters seeking escape from the east coast and california.


I'll give you this, 2 data points does make for more statistical analysis, say then predicting whether or not there's extra-terrestrial life in the universe (1 data point = earth) but 2 data points does not a 'trend' make unfortunately. You can technically correlate 'noise' to a 1% glitch... This is (in my opinion) the fundemental error in Shug'sters MOM footnotes...

And as per your 'gold rush' mentality with regards to Sea-town, been there done that... escape? What escape? If you're an east coaster, the only thing you'd be trading is Dunkin' Donuts for Starbucks and California?

equity locusts, but that well's dryin' up...

Big price drop of the week: over 500k to 998.900. I always thought the builder was out of his mind at $1.5 mil, knowing he was building properties to sell in the 600K range in the same development. I like the looks of the house ( a little big for 2), but no so sure I'd living in that neighborhood.
