A New Year Resolution

January 2-  Silicon Valley tech stocks were up by 20% on average in 2007 versus 10% for the Nasdaq!Is it any wonder that our local real estate sales were robust and prices went up?  The number of completed sales was down due to a lack of sellers, not a weak market.  Of course, the real estate market was very different (i.e. weak) elsewhere in California.  Resolve in the New Year to ignore state and national real estate statistics.  All meaningful real estate analysis is local in nature.  Jeff Stricker
