Plus the mindset about residential real estate in general has changed significantly making buyers more conservative.
What Furbeck and the back half of Coonley were initially priced at means nothing when evaluating the market for FLW houses. Recently the Mrs. Thomas Gale House was priced realistically from the start and it sold promptly.
In summary the sky is not falling for the future of FLW Houses. These is no need to disparage ownership of these great houses. What we are seeing is temporary respite, like the markets everywhere for residential real estate requiring jumbo mortgages. FLW Houses will always be great houses to live in and enjoy. What we are seeing is temporary weakening in demand for FLW Houses and some FLW Homeowners that have not accepted the current reality of the marketplace.
