Localism Challenge, Day #21:  Inventory's shrinking, prices rising- it's time to make your move
A recent column from the Orlando Sentinel's Mary Shanklin points out some encouraging signs for our local real estate market here in Orlando.  Schools are open- and Economics 101 is in session:  inventory is shrinking and prices are rising.

Can The Media Just Report The News- And Not Try To Spin It?
Sadly, I know the answer is "no".  "Home values looking to decline again"..."More owners looking to lose their homes"..."The government needs to bail-out the less fortunate homeowners that can't make their payments".
