Why such a big drop at Irvine home resales during October 2010?

This year's drop is due in part because the homebuyer government incentives (credits) ramped up last year 2009 and are no longer available.  Lots of short sales are now on the market (197), and few are closing escrow (20).  The Irvine Company is selling new homes again this year, and they had nothing on the market during October 2009.  The Orange County economy remains fragile with unemployment about 9.5%, which makes buyers nervous.  And it's challenging for buyers to get purchase money loans these days.

Current Irvine market shows 806 homes listed, and 197 of those are short listings (24.4% of the market). 

Average asking price of Irvine homes for sale is $923,560.  With such large difference between average asking price at Irvine (at $923,560) and October average sold price (at $603,805), some owner/sellers are stubborn or nostalgic.  some sellers are nostalgic
