The Stat Pack, January 2013: What’s Squeezing the Market?

We don’t believe in silver bullets. It’s why cable news doesn’t work well for us. Things don’t get easily distilled down into one minute 15 second soundbites of information.

We also believe that to really understand something, you have to do two things:
1.) Have a regular practice, and in real estate market reports, that means a somewhat religious consistency to doing the same data each and every month. It’s in exercises like these that patterns are best seen and understood.
2.) Thoughtful analysis comes from good questions. There are such things as dumb questions. But a bigger problem is taking things at face value. Prices are up. Supply is down. Demand is up. Contracts are up a lot. Well… why is all that happening?

As we change The Stat Pack this year into a blog format, this is our monthly second installment, on the theme of, “why’s that happening?” This month: What’s Squeezing the Market?
