Explainer: Overall Median Sales Price Submarket Changes May Not Fall In Range

Sourced From: http://www.millersamuel.com/explainer-overall-median-sales-price-submarket-changes-may-not-fall-in-range/

This title is way too wonky but I found it hard to pare down. It’s easier to explain visually.

When I complete my research for Douglas Elliman in a particular housing market and the percent change in the overall median sales price doesn’t fall within the individual submarkets like averages do, I periodically receive inquiries from media outlets or real …
