Why Don't True Heroes Get the Media Attention of "Fake" Heroes? - 10/26/10 01:08 PM
I get tired of hearing sports figures, hollywood actors, even politicians being called heroes. In most cases, these people risk nothing (except the potential for public embarrassment). Why is it, our country (and no we really can't blame the media alone) idolizes flamboyant rock stars, but true heroes are pushed to the side or given polite applause for a brief moment while we re-focus our attention to the latest Lohanesque news story. That is why stories of people like Rob Miller need to be highlighted (frequently) to let our nation understand the difference between simple celebrity and actual heroism. Invariably, acts (3 comments)
Farmington Real Estate Update - Third Quarter 2010 - 10/19/10 04:38 PM
My current Farmington Inventory Summary Summary for the quarter ending September 30, 2010 is now completed (see link to access full report). The report contains data for the first three full quarters of the year (can you believe we are already into the fall?). Year to date closed sales are up nearly 40% from the same period a year ago while average and median sales prices declined approximately 5% and 7% respectively year to date. So, although unit sales increased, the majority of the increase is occurring in the lower price ranges as you can see in the middle chart where (1 comments)
Morbid Humor Sometimes Has Its Place - 10/19/10 02:06 PM
I've always thought satire has an important role to play in helping to digest information that would otherwise be unpalatable or simply difficult to face or address. Perhaps that is why I enjoy Jon Stewart's approach to several issues facing our country by trying to illustrate the issues with humor but a good twinge of pragmatic reality. This recent version did a nice job of highlighting the catch-22 our industry (and by reference our economy) faces: FYI - although there is a good deal of "bleeping" involved, I recommend discretion (or at least a good volume control) in the environment you (0 comments)
Foreclosures: Frustration, Fear...And Now Fraud? - 10/05/10 11:21 AM
Leslie Ebersole in Illinois did a wonderful blog post regarding the background on the decision to have foreclosures halted in 23 states due to fraud admissions. Because Utah is a non-judicial foreclosure state, it is not one of the 23 states included in this "moratorium." However, this does not mean all of the foreclosures in our state are immune from these allegations. This is a critical issue moving through the real estate industry as it impacts the core issue whether or not a buyer of a foreclosed property (and in some cases short sale properties) have received clear title. Purchasers of (1 comments)
