Surprising House Hunting Tips

How My Real Estate Network Helps You

The media may be diligent about reporting negative news, but they’re not as reliable on follow-up when things improve. Although the local housing market has become more robust in recent months, the media’s gloom-and-doom message still holds sway over the less-informed. Today, many potential...

What Goes Up, Must Come Down

Assessing Your Assessment

Moving Toward a Balanced Market

Real estate gurus like to talk about the state of the market and whether it's balanced or not. If the total number of houses for sale is low, it's considered a seller's market.
