Today is Debate Day for the Vice Presidential Candidates and the whole country is no doubt interested to see how the whole thing will turn out.  Which ever candidate you are routing for, tonight's debate could really be telling.

According to Deer Valley's Director of Marketing Coleen Reardon, the resort's secret weapon is its guest services. "I think it's our services, the way we provide the whole vacation experience."  Reardon says she … (0 comments)

Existing-home sales rose in July to the highest level in five months, although they continue to be well below the numbers from last year at this time, according to the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.
Existing-home sales including single-family, townhomes, and condominiums increased 3.1 percent in July to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5 million units from a downwardly revised level of 4.85 million in June. Sales were 13.2 percent lower than the 5.76 million-unit pace in July 2007. Many people might be bashing these numbers, because they say 40% of these sales were foreclosures....but don't the foreclosures need to get out … (5 comments)
