Some Preliminary December, 2006 Data

Kelley Eling, a Marin real estate agent, sent me the following data which applies to December, 2006. All I did was add the row entitled "Marin Average" and the columns entitled "Percent Change Between Original and Final Price" and "% Sold Below Original Asking Price". Other than those, this is Ms. Eling's original data. Sorry about her using averages; I've tried to explain to her several times why averages are so misleading especially here in Marin where we have a small number of houses on the market and a wide disparity in sale prices.
