With that, some of them are looking to upgrade to a new home this spring and are just starting the leg work in getting pre-approved to determine what they can afford. This morning a co-worke...
I've heard a lot of talk about when the real estate market will return to back to normal and level itself out. With that, I've heard an assortment of timelines such as (Spring 2007, Summer 2007, Fall 2007, sometime in 2008, etc.). What are your thoughts regarding the market and when will it chang...
