"it would be interesting to compare turnover per residence between the neighborhoods. for example, in my building downtown, supposedly the heart of the proverbial "blow-in" phenomenon, 32 of the units remain owned by the original residential owners going on 25 years later, and another 36 of them have only been sold once over that time. (only 9 of the units have been sold more than three times in going on 25 years). i'm willing to wager that this would compare extremely favorably with any other collection of 120 contiguous houses in the city, and i'd welcome anyone to dig into the assessor's records in their neighborhood to attempt to disprove it."
anyone want to take me up on it?
