Wow! The number of transactions this year was 10,591 which surpassed the all-time record of 10,388 set in 2006. It is remarkable that the real estate market went from 6700 transactions in 2011 to 11,591 transaction this year. I expect the pace of activity to continue to accelerate during the first half of the year and then soften during the second half of the year. My annual predictions have been on the money the last three years so we'll see if I'm as smart as I think I am.
