I don’t know how anyone else feels about this. I’ll just post it as an idea and if Rich sees enough people interested, maybe he’ll put some time into it – or maybe not. Maybe I’ll butter him up and say “Gosh Professor – I thought your description of tarriffs was really well done.”
Anyway – I would really, really, really like to see the regular charts (typically presented in the monthly reports) with as many years of data as he has availalble.
I’m starting to lose track of what it was like in early 2004. How does early 2006 compare to that? I feel like we are turning the corner, but if I saw some charts with two or three years of data on it, I would have a better feel for what’s going on.
Yes, we all know sales were smokin’ and prices were flyin’, but I have no visual tool to tie Jan 2004 sales, inventory or prices to those of Jan 2006.
Maybe Rich could do this once a quarter or once every 6 months, to put the most recent data in context with the real boom years.

The chart that says it all to me is the one in his Bubble Primer, median house price/per capita income, going back to the 1970’s. I’d like to see ongoing updates of that chart.March 19, 2006 at 8:33 PM #23714bubble_contagionParticipant
These charts may be useful. The inventory data is, I believe, only for the city of San Diego. It ends December 2005. Today we are at around 9000.
It is important to note how sales have increased quite sharply from the month of March to the summer months. Sales data for the next couple of months will be very interesting.March 20, 2006 at 8:55 PM #23724sdduuuudeParticipant
Thanks – those were useful.
