The Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors released its new version of the weekly report recently and I love all the new data and breakouts by price and style. It really helps you look into the data further to see what’s happening on a sector-by-sector basis.
Here’s this week’s report:
MAAR Weekly Statistics – August 21, 2006
While these numbers are great, it can also be helpful to look at the market as a whole in summary:
