In general the fourth quarter slowed down for real estate closings in McCall, Idaho and all the surrounding communities (Donnelly, Cascade and New Meadows) in comparison to the third quarter. This is not completely unusual considering the seasonal nature of our communities but also do the lack of inventory that we saw this fall. When you look at McCall, which has the highest units sold and dollar volume of the communities, based on current inventory available and what we have seen closed consistently over the last year, we have 3.9 months worth of inventory. This absorption rate is closely related to our average days on market which is around 4.3 months.
