How to Answer the Tough Questions  BLINK!  And the market's changed.  It happens all the time.  A market moves from hot, with homes selling in days, often for more than list price to ice cold, seemingly over night.  Price cuts take hold, days-on-market (DOM) increases and home owners and sellers ...

Are We Talking Ourselves Into Recession?      Recently, the "R" word has been in the headlines quite a bit.  As with every headline, there's a "devil's advocate" position, and recently, one expert warned that if we keep talking about recession, that could CAUSE a recession!        Yes, fear is a ...
