Well Jimmy I might actually owe you an apology - if Ed's question is taken literally, then I guess we need to establish a track record over just this year. If we're looking back say 5 years, different story.

Towne Lake is like Bridgemill; desirable but both were hammered. There has been recovery - that is defined as mainly stability. Values may have moved up a bit from the bottom but I can say not in huge gulps. Most activity is in that first move up range, the higher stuff is still soft.

It's simple, sooner or later we have to stabilize and climb out, it just won't be at a rapid rate and it will happen fastest in the moderately priced homes. We're never getting back to the highs, success will be getting back to pre bubble levels....

Thanks for your comments Hank but I live and work in Towne Lake and know the market very well. As long as the shortage is continuing, prices will increase in certain pockets like Towne Lake.

I've seen a few as well and no buyers that I represent are going to those levels, the data isn't there to support it. This is not a recovery, this is a bounce and this bounce is not universal. Until the economy improves and DC stops propping up the real estate market so there's something "positive" to talk about we won't have a real idea if things have stabilized or not.

Thank you Jimmy and Hank. I've seen some pretty staggering listing prices lately in our neighborhood. For the best interest of the neighborhood, I hope they get close to their asking price.

Don't broadly assume that there has been an increase, that's not the case in every market. Within the Woodstock market you will see differences based upon schools (to the ES level), price range and even style (stucco vs brick, bsmnt vs slab).

Jimmy is fine kicking out FMLS stats but the bottom line is that to get the best picture you need to account for differences and that includes the influence of distressed sales.

The devil is in the data and that data doesn't always mesh with what people think.

FYI, there is a huge shortage of homes for sale so if you are interested in listing, please list as soon as possible. Once interest rate start to climb and more homes get listed, prices will slow down.
