Tell your clients to turn off the CNN

Real Estate Agent with Oakview Realtors
Our local housing market is still pretty good but the national media keeps saying housing is in a slump and its scaring our buyers. I saw one loud Pinhead on CNN advise all viewers to "Dont buy a house this year", "Prices are dropping" he said. 
Real Estate is local. Our local market is Stable. Please advise your clients and contacts that the National Media is not reporting the conditions of our Local Market. 

Thanks, and go sell more houses!

Thank you for your post, and this is a very valid point that you are making.  Typically the national channels are referring to the major cities that are highly populated, as opposed to smaller cities such as Salt Lake City...

Yes, i don't think city size or population is the critical factor but historically the Salt Lake City housing market has usually been different or even opposite from the national trend.
