National Home Sales Snapshot from DQ News

Click to enlarge.
Today's "National Home Sales Snapshot" from DQ News is displayed above, which has been updated with U.S. home sales during the last 30 days in 98 of the top 100 MSAs (excludes Louisville and Wichita), and covers about two-thirds of all U.S. home sales.  Compared to the same period last year, home sales over the last 30 days have increased by 9.8%, following previous increases in September of 11.3% (last week) and 10.3% (first week of the month).  

The median home sales price increased nationally by 7.8% above a year ago in the most recent 30-days sales period, which is the highest year-over-year increase during the last six weeks of data displayed above, and reflects a pattern of gradually increasing median home price increases (from 5.3% in mid-August), even though the median price has remained flat at about $200,000.

(Waiting for Cliff Note version of redistribution thread.)

Anti-redistributionists: This is a bad idea

Pro-redistributionists: it works

Anti: no it doesn't

Pro: every country does it and the ones that don't suck.

There. I just saved you from reading 130+ comments.

Here's the cliff notes:

No, but I can do Shakespeare.

Hamlet: Danish prince dies

Romeo & Juliet: Romeo & Juliet die

Macbeth: Everyone dies

King Richard III: Richard seizes throne. Richard is overthrown and killed.

Hmmm...cheese jokes eh?

Q: What happened after an explosion at a French cheese factory?

A: All that was left was de brie.

We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”

A little more nuanced than a cheese joke. But, I did like the French cheese joke.

It looks like Keynes was right. In the long run we're all dead.

Are subcriptions available? Whata time saver!

But not emotionally satisfying.

Nope. Free of charge. Just shout out your request. If I know it, I'll do it.

I also do movies, books, and video games.

Free Samples:

Godfather-Everyone but Michael dies

Game of Thrones-Everyone you have ever loved dies

Video Game:
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1-3:
1-Russian extremists hijack nuclear missile
2 & 3: Bloody waste of time and money that have no coherent plot.
