I really wouldn't call it life, its just reshuffling the old and limited new construction that leaves in doubt the quality and limited life span of new homes. This sales trend is really not a factor in our economy, its all out of state and out of country speculation buying property and tangible assets by foreign interest who don't plan to live here.

This means they are short term speculators hoping to profit from our recession and depressed economy. Our state likes to stretch the information to make nothing look like something, its what they do all day since there are no other job related tasks for them to do, so they invent some.

If you have a house for sale and haven't sold it, the numbers mean nothing to you. Like wise, if you are unemployed and numbers show the unemployement is going down, again the numbers mean nothing to you. When you sell a house or get a job, then they mean something.
