    My take is it’s nice to have a period of relative calm, but inventory is really an issue. I never thought I’d miss seeing REO listings, but there aren’t enough of those either.

    Looks like this is the first month since 2007 where we will have higher closed sales numbers than the same month in 2007. No guarantees, of course.

    The last 3 months of 09 and December of 10 and 11 also exceeded their 2007 counterparts.

    Still, the trend looks pretty good – if you like home sales.
