I don't think CFB would appreciate the Excremento description. Then again, with bunnies multiplying fast, there's got be more bunny poop there.

NJ? You have me confused with Brew.

NJ is a fine state if you have an automobile surgically attached to your legs because you can't walk anywhere.

Swim? No, ice skating or fishing in the winter months. During the winter months, many retirees return to Florida.

jersey gets an unfair bad rap. lots of great places there. my own home town just outside of the city is still a beautiful area. great houses, good amount of affordable apartments, tree lined streets. really a nice place to grow up.

meanwhile, just noticed a small amount of possibly good news for me, a house near mine finally sold in may. it is in an adjacent association. so far the only one in my association to sell in 2008 went for about $9mm (for about 10k sq ft) so not a comp. but this one is very similar to our product. they have more seawall but we are on a better street. both our houses are old teardowns built in the same era. it fetched $1,050,000 or $556/sq ft.

ok, it's only one, but there's only 9 more deepwater houses including mine under $1.5mm in that zip code and no preforeclosures at all. so that one sale represents 10% of that segment. it ain't much, but i'm taking it as a good sign.

still pretty pathetic here but broward & palm beach counties seem to be somewhat "bucking the national trend."

www.palmbeachpost.com/business/content/business/epaper/2008/07/24/0724homesales.html

both counties have increased total number of sales for 5 consecutive months now. though all of 639 & 744 houses sold in june in broward & palm beach counties, respectively, is a bit of a joke, those numbers are about twice what sold last january. we could use for that number to double a few more times. prices rose a hair month over month for two consecutive months. still down year over year, of course, and all that could be--as a friend of mine puts it--a dead cat bouncing. only time will tell.

That is great news! With a little luck, maybe your house is next.

quite normal for sales to increase this time of year since April through July is the peak selling season
