Doesn't that work both ways? If sales are artificially inflated this month due to past winter months, those same winter months would be artificially deflated.craftsman wrote: ↑ Note that much of the data has been interpreted through the eyes of a large real estate firm who makes more money if the sales go up so it might be a way to encourage more market action than anything else. We have just had one of the most snowiest Winters that we have seen in a long time which have probably artificially affected the real estate market vs any seasonal average. So, there's probably a lot of pent up action that didn't happen during the Winter and the market is playing catch-up due to the weather rather than anything else.
This thread's past history should be evidence that foreshadowing based on lower sales alone is a recipe for embarrassment.
