Whats wrong with this graph?

Over approximately last 8 months bidding war cause % Sale to List ratio lifted over 102-103%.
The graph is showing listing price vs. actual sold, discounted by about 17% (450 vs. 366). Even taking in account lag 30-45 days to closing is still not working.

doesn't mean anything about the bidding wars. In phoenix, things listed over $500k, unless they are a spectacular deal, don't get multiple offers immedialy. Under $200K is a different beast.

So you are implying; the expensive houses go cheap and the cheap houses are where the bidding happens, making the average sold price well below the average asking price.

Makes sense to me.

More like a listing inflated war. Silly. Hey, I have a condo forsale. The exact same one across from me went last month for $350k. So, I just listed mine for $750K firm. Only accepting cash offers. Also, you must not have any pets and my wife must be prettier than yours.

Picture

In Santa Clara County by average is 10 offers; property goes in contract with above Listing Price. Why actual Sale is deeply below Listing Price?

With this explanation expensive houses should go well, well below asking (like 50%) to bring average so significantly down.

The Listing$/Ft must include all active listings where the Sold$/ft only represents actual sold properties.

It would make more sense for the listing$ to only reflect those properties that also sold... but this is the only explanation I can think of.

The high-end isn't as hot as the middle and low ends...

So listing agent must be dumb to take in listing well overpriced property without a chance to be sold.
