5 Reasons to buy a home this year Affordability returns to housing, and buyers have loads of negotiating powerBy Amy Hoak, MarketWatch2009CHICAGO (MarketWatch) -- People are afraid to buy a home in times like these, with the economy tanking and home prices continuing to fall. But if you're brave enough to stray from the herd, you might be in for the home-buying opportunity of a lifetime.

Some really bad MLS photos - 02/06/09 10:04 AM
I couldn't pass this up. Everyday as part of my routine I look for expired properties in Jacksonville. Here's a home that expired yesterday...was listed by a real estate firm that professes to be the top company in the area. This seemed to be priced okay. It's a 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bath with 1808 square feet. But look at the photos that were attached to the MLS. I wonder if this had something to do with it NOT SELLING! The agent you choose means everything to your success....
Is this agent selling a house or cars?
