Local Sales Climb 22%

Recently, our local board produced some pretty impressive numbers in a press release. It's great news after some pretty dodgey times! Click below to view the press release for yourself and keep in mind that these numbers were posted when interest rates were at 5%! Most recent interest rates were sitting around 4.8%!

Perhaps April will be coming in like a lion afterall!

Are We There Yet?

I can remember saying that for days as my family, all 7 of us treked in the chevy from Kentucky to California and back. Now as a nation we ask, "Are We There Yet?" Wondering where the bottom is. The "experts" say midway through this year! I have to wonder if these are the same experts who said that eggs were good for us...wait bad for us...wait really good for us but you can't eat all of it.

We should take all the pontificating with the same level of moderation. In the end I think we can all agree that it's a new world, one that even the experts have not lived in. So trust your instincts, plan accordingly and follow that tried and true boy scout motto: Be Prepared. I think in the end we can all agree that the experts are best at explaining what happened, rather than what might happen.
