California June 2015 Home Sales Report

If you look at the May 2015 report and then this June report you will notice a big disparity on the May numbers.  Either infographics got the info wrong on the June report, or the May.  When July’s comes out we will see if the numbers get corrected.  I think its safe to say, from multiple sources, that the MEDIAN PRICE of California homes is still in an upward trend.  What do you think?
