A friend sent me this graph yesterday. It tracks the real estate sales activity in Pagosa Springs compared against the S&P index. It is not rocket science but it gives the indication that market activity is directly tied to stock market confidence here in Pagosa Springs. This makes even more since considering we are primarily a second home driven market. I thought it looked interesting when you look at it using the graph.
