  1. Have the short sales dropped and foreclosures gone back up in your area? I thought foreclosures were starting to drop off the market. We are seeing more short sales in our area instead of foreclosures which is a good sign

  2. I’m surprised that REO’s are priced higher per square footage than short sales. Usually they are less. Interesting stats, Rich!

  3. Such a difference between REO and short sales… wow. What a market to keep up with. You’re doing a great job Rich!

  4. Our Oahu market is doing well but prices are still down. We have to stay on top of getting those short sales closed which can be quite tricky.

  5. It’s good to see so many regular sales in your area. Short sales are starting to slow down in our area but REO’s are really taking a dive. YAY
