Hi sccbuy, I don't know what numbers you are referring to, but if you combine both the East and West side, the numbers will be pretty low. By referring to the East side, I'm talking about East of 101.
The reason for this are the foreclosures and short sales. Here is a scenario, Let's say there were 20 homes sold in a particular month and 12 were short sales and foreclosures, with the rest normal home sales, the medium price is going to be way down.
Like I said, I don't know what numbers you are looking at, but I would adivse you break them down in areas or neighborhoods rather than cities.
