3.75 This week for REI


(-1.25) Total Volume for past two weeks from October 28th through November 8th, we will look at 10 business days that include “Trick or Treat” Need 80 sales over this two week period. There was only 59 sales with total volume of $6,777,839. Historically you can look for heavy sales volume end of the year for tax planning purpose. The new Capital Gains tax of 20% for individuals with AGI above $250,000 has killed many of a deal this year. If government raises taxes it influences some people’s decision to sale or not to sale.


(+1.25) New Homes looking for only a couple during this two week period for positive score
