At first, I thought about adding a little something to the title to take the edge off. At first glance, it sounds like I am about to commit one of the cardinal sins of blogging on AR. After all, I know that my broker doesn't read this - he's too busy making deals, etc. This is one of the many times that I wish he would read the blogs. Why?

East Mountain Waterbury Ct Real Estate - Quarterly Market Report January 31, 2009   Sellers Tip #1: Use a Realtor While doing a "For Sale By Owner" may seem like a good idea, it may ultimately cost you more, both  in terms of time and money.

For Buyers of all types, whether they be individuals/families looking to buy their first home, or investors looking to capitalize on the drop in multi-family home prices, there are still places that are humming with activity. Now that interest rates for mortgages have hit a 40 year low, and there is plenty of inventory to choose from, there is no real reason for people to not  buy real estate TODAY!
