On July 23rd we’re going to determine the winner of the latest contest to guess the number of 2Q09 detached sales, but here’s a preview.
As of this morning, the MLS is reporting 5,683 detached closings for 2Q09, at $223.19/sf. There is typically about 10% more added by late-reporting agents, which would be around 6,250. But with more-stringent MLS police enforcement recently, and a slightly earlier date, the final number may be lower.
Duplicate numbers happen every time, but in this contest there was only one double, 6,021, and the two guesses were logged in within four minutes of each other. They are my pick to win!
Here are the guesses:
|5,250||tj and the bear|
|5,323||Al in IC|
|5,451||Del Sur Renter|
|5,512||3clicks from da beach|
The “Day at the Track” winner will receive six tickets for box seats right above the finish line at Del Mar, with waitress service!
Here are the previous counts:
