    Prices are more fluffed at the high end.

    Now, this is the sales to original ask or GMLS “cook-the-books” last ask?

    is the calculation sale price to original listing or to last listed price prior to sale?

    • Original – the Greenwich real estate board uses last, which is why they can continue to claim that listings are selling for, say, “96% of asking price” (and until I campaigned in print some years ago, they also reset the clock on Days on Market to hide the years some houses sat there.
      Think about it: just like a lost object is always found in the last place you look, so too do houses sell. If you din’t find it there, you’d look somewhere else; if you didn’t sell there, you’d go to another price.
