Details

A local Grinnell realtor, Matt Karjalahti, put these data together to see what patterns might be found, perhaps with an improvement in how one sells houses or buys them. He asked Grinnell College economists, Lee Logan and Eric Ohrn, to help with the analysis and we obtained the data from them.
