YTD Activity:
The fiist seven months have piouuceu some inteiesting iesults.
Buiing the fiist half of 2u1S, sales consistently tiaileu 2u12 in
both tiansactions anu uollai volume. At the enu of }une we weie
shoit of 2u12's pace by S tiansactions anu $S8N in volume
(-14%) but still well aheau of 2u11 levels in both aieas.
At the enu of }uly the
gap naiioweu with
2u1S havi ng one
moie t iansact i on
than in 2u12 anu
2u1S volume falling
even fuithei behinu
2u12 volume enuing
$4uN, oi -12.9S%,
below last yeai.
While the numbei of
tiansactions aie compaiable to what was expeiienceu in 2u12,
sluggish sales foi piopeities piiceu between $2N anu $SN is the
main ieason foi the shoitfall in uollai volume in 2u1S. With yeai
to uate sales in this piice iange now stanuing at 21 tiansactions
(1u.S% of YTB tiansactions) vs. 4u sales in 2u12 (19.7%) anu 27
sales (17.6%) in 2u11, this paiticulai segment of the maiket
iemains paiticulaily weak.
If the thiee sales ovei $1uN occuiiing this yeai (totaling $4S.2N)
weie excluueu, yeai to uate volume woulu be the lowest since
2uu9 while tiansaction activity woulu only be two shoit of what
