I don't know if you've read any of what has been written here on AR recently about Jennifer Allans appearance on the internet radio show, "Real Estate Radio USA", but Jennifer has written about it as has Broker Bryant (of course his got featured! ;-) and after reading a comment by Brett Wilson on...
As I've written about before, a number of years ago I went through a period that I called, "My Blue Funk".  While I won't bore you with the details here again, I will tell you that as a result of what I went through during this period of time, I learned one of the most important lessons that I've...
On January 2, 2008 I posted, "Predictions for 2008" where I predicted that Broker Byrant would still be getting 40% of his posts featured here on AR and that sometime during 2008 that the Dow Jones Industrial Average would close at or below 10,000.  I appear to be on track for both of these predi...
A buddy of mine called me the other day and asked me if I would mind helping him determine where he should price his home at for sale.  The home is in a different market area than what I serve, but one that I am very familiar with.

As some of you know, my daughter recently graduated from "The Ohio State University" and moved back home to St. Louis to live with her mother.  She's in the process of looking for her first "real" job and as is her style, she's already started burning the candle at both ends by starting work on h...
This morning I was watching CNBC and they had David Seiders, Chief Economist for the National Association of Home Builders who was pressing the case for the passage of the Housing Stimulus Package that is currently moving it's way through Congress. And while I am in favor of government action to ...
With all of the bad press that the real estate markets are getting, did you know that there is a silver lining to it all?  That silver lining is in areas where you used to not be able to buy a home for less than $100,000 you can now buy a home for less than $70,000! If you're willing to go a bit ...
