My thoughts: Whoa. Number of closings has dropped, a lot. I still haven’t thought this through, but my guess is this is the result of the lag between properties going under agreement and closing (four to six weeks). Closings this week would have gone under agreement the first and second week of September which aren’t prime times to be looking for a home, obviously. I guess I assumed we had already been past that. I spoke too soon when I said several weeks ago that we’d see an uptick in volume.

Under agreements have stayed steady, as have new listings, so I’d say we’re in a steady, healthy market, at this point.
