I take away first of all we ended last year on a fantastically good note the national index up seven point 3% over the four quarters of the year.
-- Citi twenty city composites almost that well very good numbers.
Looking across the twenty cities nineteen of the twenty were up in the twelve months ended with decent but.

More than just -- -- -- -- New York metro area -- heavily dependent -- financial services.
I'll washing his heavy depended on Uncle Sam Detroit unfortunately for them is heavily dependent on -- and so on and so -- Financial services.
For it was having some some rough moments here and there.
Second a -- compared to a lot of other industries a much higher portion of that somebody total compensation.
Comes in a bonus right so.
That compensations likely to bounce around be a little bit more volatile and more -- certain.
And all of that in difficult times what we see you know last year -- Makes people little bit hesitant.
And that's may be dampening some of the housing boom so quickly predict 2013 -- -- are we off to the races are we gonna pull back a little bit.
And that we go in with a whole lot of momentum on a national basis.
