The Warren Group, a Boston real-estate services firm, reported yesterday that sales of single-family homes declined 7.6 percent last year. That is much larger than the 3.5 percent drop in 2005 sales reported recently by the Massachusetts Association of Realtors in its year-end report.

The association’s data do not include private transactions, such as a parent’s sale to offspring, or sales by owners, or builders directly to buyers.

Hmmm. I guess that could be the reason. It’s not like the Realtor board has any reason to lie about the data, do they?
