Perhaps the data would be better understood if they actually used the ECAR or Bay Co numbers and not the Ft Walton or PC numbers. I doubt the area of 30A is included in either, so the numbers will vary, depending on what areas are included.Now that I start looking into the numbers even deeper it gets even more confusing... Nov 05 data (from FAR) shows Existing Home Sales at 322 for FWB MSA...
Then when the give the Nov 06 data at 154 Existing Home Sales they magically drop (revise???) the compared Nov 05 Existing Home Sales to 245...
If they used the originally quoted 322 sales that they gave last year it would actually be a sales decline of 52% yoy not the stated 37% sales decline.....
I guess we can conclude from this that the NAR's statistics are crap
