    Urgh, even if i had $4 mill, I wouldn’t pay a dime for that gaudy 2 Constitution Court listing. Yikes. That’s just about the most ostentatious mess I’ve ever seen.

    thanks as always.

    looks like activity picked up a bit last week. Lower prices are obviously working.

    We need to factor in the seasonality of the sales figures (particularly when comparing quarter to quarter). Sales always spike during the spring/early summer as people look to be settled in their new place prior to the new school year. In an average year, sales during 2Q are higher than 1Q. So, you need to look back to 2Q08 to make a fair comparison on how weak things actually are. If it turns out that 2Q09 sales are lower than 1Q09, this decline is much worse than even the most pessimistic thought. Don’t think that will be the case however.

    Thanks Howard for putting the weekly numbers, much appreciated!

    The numbers don’t look bad at all! But that’s just me

    Thanks Howard, much appreciated in Lori’s absence.

    Agree with previous comments, seems like it has picked up just a bit, but taken into historical context, could actually be an omen of bad things. I guess we will just have to hold tight for May’s final numbers before making any strong conclusions from one week of data…

    Happy 3-day everyone!
