A pregnant girl moving in was out of the question. Well, a nearby gazebo with a Crape Mrtle growing beside it looked like the next...

 Sometimes I have to wonder if these surveys really took place, and if they did, where did they take place. The reality with buyers I've worked, and am currently working with don't match Trulia's survey results of homebuyers.  If you're read the current Trulia Newsletter article about " The 4 Big...
