More Homes Coming, Or Less?

Same Statistics Generate Opposing Headlines!

One thing that always amazes me is how looking at the exact same studies can result in headlines from different news outlets that are the complete opposite of each other. We have just such a situation today. Of course, the first question to ask when faced with these kinds of contradictions is “Who benefits?”. In this case, it would likely come down to sites who have discovered that bad news sells and other sites that have a vested interest in news that makes the real estate industry look like things are just going great!

We will talk about that interesting little fact on todays show and review the data and try to come up with a less biased view of how this info would best be used by buyers, sellers, investors and real estate entrepreneurs.

There is also a great new tool from Google that will make it just that much easier for you to keep on top of your goals – even when you have to move them around your real life.
