All real estate is local--that's a long held truism in the business.  The NAR report proves that yet again.  While the Western US saw sales increase 10.3%, the rest of the nation stayed flat or declined, bringing the overall increase to less than 1%. The Southeast Florida region is still sufferin...

I received a call about one of my listings today from a potential buyer.    The man immediately told me that he's already working with another realtor (who is out of town), but still had some questions about my listing.  I nonetheless gladly answered his questions & suggested that, if still inter...

Incredibly, there are lots of folks out there (mostly sellers) who can't believe that the housing market has declined so much, so quickly.  To anyone that follows financial news, this decline, especially in Florida, was destined to occur.  I believe it all started with the dot.com collapse--inves...

I love the holiday season.  However, in recent years I've stayed away from malls & busy shopping centers during December.  In fact, this year we went to see "The Rockettes" downtown, instead of shopping, the day after Thanksgiving.  I enjoy the season by shopping at little out-of-the-way stores, ...

Last week, the local paper had another article on the residential real estate market in Southeast Florida.  Essentially, it said that the market will remain weak & may actually decline for another year, then start a rebound in 2009.  This year received a lot of negative press too.  Strangely, how...
