Slightly Inflated Figures
The NAR today... HEY! The writing is down here not up there.
Any way, the NAR today finally revised heir 2007-present used home sales figures to more closely resemble reality. The reality we've been blogging about for even longer than that.
As usual Calculated Risk has the delicious chart porn. That's "chart porn" stop looking up there. Digging deeper their new methodology is just their old methodology minus mistakes they found. Still useless as a measure.
What we need is a parallel certification process. Certified National Real Estate Professional Association. No political advocacy, no "Suzanne researched this," just a formal process of identifying professionals and an ethics reporting mechanism.
