Take Your Turn in The Richmond Market

It’s Your Turn

The third in a series of seven community real estate snapshots, is about Richmond.

I usually have something to say about this or that. For a change up it seemed fair to make this post about you. It’s your turn to a say something other than ‘bloodbath’, the ‘world is ending’ or some other typical bear/bull statement that adds nothing to understanding. If you are nice, I’ll post the comment. If you are cranky forget it!

Bottom line – Friday’s are for fun. Most people read comments so let’s have some. Be brilliant and make the most of Your Turn!

Larry, thanks for the graphs – this is great data and I send links to everyone I know.

It would be great if you kept the historical data you’ve tracked in the charts as well (i.e. have bars for jan/feb, feb/mar and mar/apr)

hey Larry,

have you been hearing from any realtors that their clients are having a harder time getting approved for mortgages?

on a non-cranky note, gotta love cherry blossom season!

and thanks for the community snapshot series, I can imagine it takes a lot of time to put together, much appreciated!

I am surprised to see that “Total listings dropped from 1,191 in the Feb/Mar to 1,185 in Mar/Apr” – when I drive around the town, it looks like there are “For sale” signs just about everywhere, especially they started to multiply recently – what was the cut off date for April data (it is still April, isn’t it?)?
