Want to know how homes are going to change in 2008? Ann Mack, director of trendspotting at the giant JWT advertising agency has several predictions. In 2008, expect to see construction, design and decoration that go well beyond the basics to accommodate the eco- friendly, digitally savvy and time-crunched homeowner.

Sedona Real Estate Market - 01/21/08 02:30 PM
Real Estate News: The Sedona market like most of the country is slow - with much a smaller volume of sales than in the previous three years. One of the major differences between Sedona and most other markets is that the Sedona real estate market is not driven by employment - and there were far fewer investors in this area than most areas of the USA. This creates a lower volatility of pricing. Few sellers really need to sell urgently - and few people purchase homes because of job transfers. We also have the advantage of a strong demand from retirees. (0 comments)
