Holy Cow! Just to put into perspective how different the national inventory is now compared to every year going back to 1995, check out the graph below. Nuts. Good luck sifting through the earlier years; they begin to bleed together but are still somewhat decipherable.

And what is our local contribution to those current numbers above? These figures are courtesy of Athens’ local MLS and were taken July 31, 2008.
