This graphical analysis from Global Insight using data from the National Association of Realtors shows that Arizona sales are way down (no news there) but Texas still seems strong.

It’s amazing to me to see that prices in North Dakota (my father’s homeland) went up 26% in a year.

I knew about the run ups in California, Florida, Boston and Washington D.C., but didn’t realize the magnitude of the increases in North Dakota and Minnesota.
