Where do you get your news?

Real Estate Agent with Watts Team Real Estate

Do you get your Real Estate Information from the Newspapers?  Do you watch the evening news to get caught up on home sales and values?   That sounds reasonable if you want yesterday’s information.  Journalism is about reporting the Who, What, When, Where, and why, not the Now, and Tomorrow.   Isn’t the present and future what you really want to know when making financial decisions like buying a home or refinancing your property?  Of course it’s impossible to predict the future but knowing today’s events will better equip you to make future decisions than knowing last month’s data.    I’ve stopped reading the Real Estate Sections of the LA Times unless I want to know when Brittany Spears sells her next home because I’m amazed how often they will report record low interest rates a few days after they’ve returned to higher levels and how often they report record home sales when it’s clear to me inventory is growing and prices are about to fall.

This is so true real estate is based on the market and what it is doing at the time not days or months later.
