Since 2003, I have provided a chart that appears once a month in the Economic Spotlight section of _Crain’s New York Business_ magazine. Here is this month’s chart appearing in the current issue of [Crain’s New York Business](

    I will try not so sound like your old friends Anon and Anonymous on Curbed, but is this significant?

    Obviously, you think so or else you would not have put it out to Crain’s. But the five year range of 36.6% market share to 35% market share does not strike me as large. I get it that directionality can make for significance, but I don’t think your four year (slight) trend is enough – without seeing another five or ten years back. Maybe I should have taken Stats in college.

    If anything, I find this narrow increase in top-end-market-share smaller than expected, as “the top” seems to get higher and higher. So, to me, the ‘significance’ is that it is not higher.

    (would you feel better if I call you names or insult you??)

    Actually, it was amazingly consistent in the second half of the 90’s so I thought that an uptick during the recently housing boom was %^&%$$&* interesting. 😉

    We also experienced a real estate boom in South Africa, but when will the bubble burst?

    The real estate grouth in South Africa is from 25% per year to 12% per year now
