These numbers are not believeable. The source of these numbers is not credible.

Can we get a little analysis to go along with these stats?? The jump in Washtenaw County does not surprise me. The drop in Ann Arbor does - but is this within the noise??

Interesting, but I wonder if these stats are distorted by the sale of several HUD homes at much below market prices, along with a batch of county acessor auctioned homes. I'd like a comparison of prices with these distressed homes removed.
