09 May, 2017

Signing that contract means more money, and more money means thoughts of investment.  Let’s face it, the average playing lifespan of a professional athlete is only seven years, seven out of seventy or eighty for the entire life, so it is importan [...]

The Best Time to Buy or Sell a Home

15 November, 2016

Why has the Real Estate Recovery Stagnated

14 January, 2015

What’s up with the real estate market?  That was the question I heard recently at a workshop for real estate agents and brokers.  If the recession has ended, then why is the real estate market so flat?  Property values remain at or below the affordability levels in most markets.  Lenders have billions of dollars in excess cash to lend, and foreclosures are down to their 2006 levels. By all standard measurements, the real estate market should be booming, and yet it isn’t. For th [...]
