Sales of all North County real estate types were down 15% in November  over October but up 13% over November of last year. The first 11 months of the year are up 10% for the same time period in 2011. Properties in escrow are down 17% from last month and also down 17% from November  of 2011. Active listings on the market were down 8 % from October  and also down 27% from the same time last year.  Smaller inventories of properties for sale are having an effect.
