Apology accepted

Went to the computer this AM to post a bunch of updated reports and spreadsheets about Santa Fe residential real estate sales and inventory.

Don’t bother me!

… because I am busy trying to figure out where the homes are going to come from that buyers will be looking to buy next year. We have precious little to choose from making our market a lopsided seller’s market. That means buyers are not going to be in a strong bargaining position with sellers. […]
