"You kind of have your own business within a business." Dave Antrim, president of Coldwell Banker Antrim-Piper Wenger Realtors, offered congratulatory words for Re/Max, saying their numbers are indicative of success. But size isn't always what matters in real estate, he said. "Every agency has good agents. Sheer numbers does not necessarily indicate they're doing a better job than say Millwood, which has a lesser share," he said. "McDonald's serves a lot more hamburgers than J.C.'s (Bar and Grill, Salina), but I kind of prefer a J.C.'s hamburger. It's just a marketing strategy that they (Re/Max) feel is effective." Dip in 2001 David Holmgren, a Re/Max broker and current president of the Salina Board of Realtors, said home sales overall for the first quarter of this year have been down a bit on volume and sales in the city The biggest glut of homes on the market in Salina is in the $50,000 to $120,000 price range — 102 homes, he said. There also are more than the average number of homes — 44 — on the market priced between $120,000 and $180,000. Holmgren and Welsh said one reason homes in that price range are moving slowly is because with interest rates low, more buyers are chosing to purchase new homes priced at $200,000 and above. What some of those buyers aren't taking into account is the cost of improvements to a new home versus an existing home, which can add to the cost, Welsh said. A privacy fence, a yard, special assessments for street and utility improvements to new subdivisions — "pretty soon that $205,000 turns into a $225,000 to $230,000 home," Welsh said. • Reporter David Clouston can be reached at 823-6464. Ext. 131, or by e-mail at sjdclouston Gas / SUV sales are increasing FROM PAGE E1 Even before Monday's blaze, gas prices were $2 a gallon in the San Francisco area and averaging $1.82 statewide. • Smoggy Midwest cities will experience their second summer with less polluting gasoline blends, required by federal clean air rules. Midwest governors and the AAA did get some relief from the Environmental Protection Agency which granted lee­ way in markets where gasoline is blended with ethanol. But plans to extend gas sales tax moratoriums like the one that cost Illinois $150 million last summer have collided with an economic slowdown that is sapping state treasuries. This year, Illinois Gov. George Ryan announced, the state can't afford a gas tax holiday The slowing economy hasn't stalled sales of gas-guzzling sports utility vehicles: SUV sales are up 11.5 percent the first three months of 2001 over the same quarter a year ago, although the fastest-growing category is crossover utDity vehicles, or CU- Vs, including the Ford Escape, the Chrysler FT Cruiser, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. Their smaller sticker price and greater gas mileage fit best with many family budgets, said economist Paul Taylor of the National Association of Automobile Dealers.
