homes: Short Sale awareness - 04/25/08 07:03 AM
 
April 25, 2008 Short Sale awarenessI was going back and forth on what to write this week in my blog. I was telling my wife that I don't want to sound like a broken record, repeating the same information every week, so she suggested I write about short sales. I looked back and it has been awhile since I wrote about short sales and I am always getting calls from buyers who see a home $50,000 under price--what a steal!

homes: Pending home sales in February up in the West. - 04/10/08 10:53 AM
 I heard  in a news report on Tuesday that the amount of homes that went pending in February was down 1.9%. Of course this is a national average. I was sort of surprised because here in my office our open escrows have grown since January. As I looked closer at the data I found some really good news for us here in the Western states.
 The Pending Home Sales Index is a forward-looking indicator based on contracts signed in February. The PHSI in the Northeast rose 3.2 percent in February (to 71.8) but remains 25.4 percent below a year ago.  In the … (4 comments)

homes: More GOOD news for housing - 03/21/08 04:37 AM
Throughout the week I have read a couple of reports that have shed some positive light on the whole housing situation.

homes: Where do you get your real estate news? - 01/23/08 04:30 AM
I read an article online at http://www.rismedia.com/ titled "Where the Truth about Today's Market Really Lies".  As you look at the title you might read the word "Lies" as where someone can really find the truth of the real estate market.
