The ides of March

What do have to compare with? From the REBGV stats:

In March 2012, there were 2874 sales, 30% less than March 2011, and 8% less than March 2010.

March 2012 had the second LOWEST sales of any month since 2002. It was 17% below the 10 year average.

Listings were up 15% from March 2011.  

What does this all mean? It mean March 2012 was a very weak month and the bar is set very low.

If we go under March 2012's sales we really are in a correction.
