real estate: Realtor Advice on Going Green!!! - 06/19/08 10:08 AM
Considering that we are always in some crisis, let's consider making small lifestyle changes that we, as consumers, can make to conserve energy this summer. Most utility companies maintain that if Mr. And Mrs. Consumer cut back only 10% -15% of their daily energy consumption, we can completely eliminate the need for blackouts.

real estate: Can our market drop another 50% according to Michael Youngblood? - 06/13/08 10:49 AM
Here are staticial facts from Realist.com, a site that tracks market data from Title records. 
I find that doing just a little research on our area, could he be misleading consumers?
 Michael Youngblood's forecast of the Housing Market.
Interesting enough, he talks about California as his hook to get readers to read, but backs it up with Trulia.com stats of Riverside , Sacramento,and San Diego, Stockon, and Central California cities. What happen to the Los Angeles, Orange County cities? they are showing signs of movement of homes to new ownership.

Yahoo Article "5 new rules for home buyers"
 
I can not make it any clearer for Home Buyers out there.
Rule 1: You can't time the bottom
