Don't believe every thing you hear on TV or read in the Newspapers!

You know and I know you can not believe everything you hear on TV and in the newspapers. Anyone with any common sense realizes that the up swing in Real Estate prices could not go on forever. If it did, Our children would never be able to be a home owner. The market for sure has slowed down but only for the sellers. The buyers are still out there and active. Couples get married and want a home. Older people  can no longer take the steps in their house and need a one story. People pass-away or people retire and want to move geographically. As a practicing Realtor for almost 18 years I have seen the good and bad in the markets. This too will pass. So when you are chatting with friends or family, remember that this is a great time to buy Real Estate. And don't believe every thing you read or hear. Thanks!

Perky, it is interesting to read AR members' earliest posts.

I don't really watch TV, haven't since 1976. I see bits and pieces now and then, but my house has a TV only for the VCR / DVD capabilities -- no cable, no favorite TV shows to be viewed every week, no Monday night football ....

Not watching TV, I miss out on much of the negative news. I didn't know about all the doom and gloom until April 2008.
