Some areas are harder hit than others.  In Melbourne Florida, we are experiencing the aftershocks of a very lucrative, over priced market.  A few things have kept my business going.  I have become an expert with Short Sales, and ha...
Brevard County Homes for Sale have hit an all time high. Every street, it seems has one home for sale or rent. The newspaper articles blame it on the economy, taxes, and insurances. Of course we all know about all the negative aspects of the declining real estate market, we're living it too. Let ...
