Good to hear that inventory is moving! What is driving your dramatic increase in condo sales? Investors?

Actually, more than anything else, I think it is just folks taking advantage fo the falling prices. People are getting into these premier communities at prices not seen since 2003 or before.

Wow, only an 8% drop in home prices. That's not bad. The condo numbers are impressive as well. Price drop is expected, but the increase in unit sales is a surprise. Nice to see somewhat good news!

It is nice to see action in the higher priced sales bracket. In Pensacola, we have a ton of inventory on the higher end, but the prices have not reached a point where investors are willing to move yet.

The first time buyer market really seems to be heating up though. Good luck in the new year!

Here on the coast of South Carolina, beach front homes and property have seen double digit dip in price. Charleston, SC probably is doing the best but overall it has not been pretty.

To be fair and honest to my customers, I have to tell them I still think the market is over priced. I might loose a sale or two but I can see in many of my customers eyes that they respect the truth. Hopefully they respect it enough to come back.

And 8% is not bad at all. Here we have seen 25-30%. I'm hoping the end is near.

Those are positive numbers. Perhaps they'll go higher with the new tax credit that congress is proposing. I'm hoping that will increase demand for homes throughout the country.

The slumping home sales are starting to turn around. I agree that the new tax credit should help help turn things around. It looks as though we probably won't be fully back to normal until summer of 2010.
