Did you read about . .

Shaking my head. Just read a newspaper article that stated the real estate market was “tapping the brakes”. Okay, I get it, you have a personal opinion. But then when you read how they backed it up with “facts”?

 

Currently my market has 3000 homes for sale. Its not unusual for us to have 11,000 homes for sale. But I guess he missed that. The writer also stated that a number of homes have no offers. What he didn’t write about is how those homes are listed over 40% above market value.

 

Thank you, members of the press. We appreciate the misinformation.

The housing market was on the "news" last  night and I just rolled my eyes and left the room.

It seems that is what the media is about these days, just making something up and getting people to believe it, haha.

Hi Rocky... I see headlines like that all the time and just shake my head... and then remind my own clients to pay no attention to articles like that because they are highly skewed to tell a story.

That's why we are telling our home buyers who say the market is correcting itself to go to Open Houses and see the long lines...and multiple offers over asking price!

Good morning Kat Palmiotti isn't it great that people who never sell real estate are in charge of informing the consumers?

Good morning Brian England I do remember a story from 2016 that Hillary had been kidnapped and replaced by an alien.

Some of the newspaper articles add smiles to our faces.

With the strong market, I wish we had another home so we could sell our current residence.

Good morning Roy! Yes, having some extra homes could prove quite profitable now.

Hi Rocky- sadly the days of actual news presented as it really is, for the listener or reader to decipher are gone. Now whatever is presented is based on the agenda of the newsreader or the company.
