yes, but it's hard for the consumer to digest that when the media lumps the entire country into one 10 sec newsfeed.  aka - the market is up! Inventory is down.  Yeah, well not everywhere nor should it be.

 What Lyn Sims said. 

      I get so tired of hearing, "But NPR says prices are up, everybody is getting multiple offers..." or, " On the HGTV show they had lots of buyers coming through the Open House..."

Of course! That's why even if you CAN sell in an entire state, it may not be wise to do so unless you really know the area's 'tribal customs'.

Every market is unique and different as are the types of real estate within these markets. Which is why any new agent in these markets needs to become knowledgable of the real estate there in order to best represent their clients.

Certainly there is a big difference between the 2 markets in your example, just as there is a big difference in a resort market like mine compared to a major urban market.

It's called HYPERlocal for a reason and I'm with Lyn Sims - it's confusing to the consumer when they hear these national stats. You can't even site stats in one CITY and be 'accurate,' especially if it's one that's over 100K population!

Low cap, slow churn real estate is marketed differently (buyer market) than high cap, 10% churn real estate.
