New Orleans Condos-Are Studio Condos good buys? - 05/25/09 09:44 PM
New Orleans Condos-The Studio condos, are they good buys? Studio condos are generally condos that are small and have no separate bedroom. They are too small in most cases to have room for a bedroom. In the current market most studios are not good buys. They sit on the market for long periods of time which tells me they are less desirable. Its not until the prices becomes very very good that they will sell. There are always one bedroom units in the same price range so the studios tend to sit and sit. There are exceptions to my (1 comments)

1.85 trillion budget deficit next year for USA, How is that going to effect the housing market? - 05/11/09 10:08 PM
These are some outstanding numbers I would predict the numbers will even go higher as tax receipts are falling off the cliff. I know first hand I will pay much less in taxes this year. These numbers are unattainable and could be called a government borrowing bubble. It does not make sense to me. The effects are going to be higher interest rates in the future and sooner than we think. This will slow down the housing market. We will see some inflation but maybe not in housing prices as more and more people will be shut out of the (10 comments)
