But that really does not prove a whole lot of nothing. So one area has a drop in the number of sales. Fewer homes were listed for sale for people to buy. Therefore the people that live in those homes are happy w/ where they live and don't want to move. Areas that also don't have a lot of new construction and are pretty much built out will have less sales. Does not mean that is a bad sign at all. If an area that is pretty much built out only had one area being developed w/ homes that are lower than the median prices of last years sales of course it will drop. It is all pretty subjective really. It can be sliced and diced so many ways to mean too many different things good or bad.

Oh, not ragging on you or anything. Just wanted others to know that numbers like this don't always paint a true picture of an area.

I just like looking at the numbers. I wish the areas were broken down into smaller areas.

I agree. When I saw the map in todays DMN it had all of Garland in one map. Geez, the 10th largest city in the state. Kind of hard to lump the ENTIRE city all into one real estate catagory when it is so vastly different. Same goes for MANY areas. Even by zipcode is not good enough.

Agreed. Especially with Garland, which is really big and has very different neighborhoods.

FND thanks -- did you do one with price per square foot? I haven't seen it if you did...maybe that might help.

Also some of these MLS areas are huge and some are very small. East Dallas Area 12 usually has 2,500 to 3,000 sales and also includes parts of South Dallas near Fair Park and Parkdale/Urbandale. Plus the east side of White Rock is different from the west side, etc...

Would Murphy be similar to Garland / Sacshe? Or worse since the buliders are churning out houses?

Well, Sachse isn't even Sachse, it's Sachse-Rowlett, so it's a big range as well. I would think it would be a bit better than Wylie, but that's just a guess.

I think Murphy's numbers would be more like Plano's numbers since it's in Plano's school district. Sachse, Rowlett and Garland are all Garland school district.

Maybe a realtor online can break it down better.
