These guys are masters of misusing statistics. I was reading the Wall St Journal this morning when I came across this little nugget of information.
The NAR has been touting decent sales numbers over the last month, 360,000 sales versus 375,000 sales in the same month last year. Its the truth, but here is the real catch according to the WSJ piece ... Over half of those homes sold last month were foreclosures and short sales, while that number was under 20% a year ago.
Lies, damn lies and statistics.
