A little late this month, but here are the stats!
From the Big House Data Executive Summary:
The month of November 2007 has shown that price moves property. The average list price in November drops, and the closings for November increased. What also moves property is quality. As regular readers will know, Big House Data has had a price and quality mantra for a long time. Price will cause the buyer to come through your property; the outstanding quality of your property will cause them to get “stuck” on your home. The convergence of price and quality is where your property will sell. Traditionally seen as a slow time in real estate, anecdotally, property and buyers are moving right now. Buyers in this winter market are motivated, as “no one likes to move in the winter!”
