Interest Rates are at a all time low .... Paying rent on property owned by others is not an attractive proposal.  Even if you, as a new home owners understand that you may not realize high equity gains for some years, owning a home offers a quality of life that we Americans desire.  We are an independent society and having control of our home drives many of us home buyers.  Let's talk about owning a home!

Patty, I am hear to review your post and I see that the drop in sales is relative on both sides of the Cascades. I hope your business remains strong...

Patty, I am not trying to down play the RE down turn, but a 20+/- per cent volume and 20+/- down turn in price is not so bad.Relatively speaking we have pockets of 30-40 down in price & volume.
