  Well - it looks like we may be losing our Congressman but possibly gaining a new Senator.  Delaware County PA is once again lining up to be a key battleground in the 2010 election on the national stage. Last week, the local Delaware County Times reported that "Sestak (is) All But In For Senate Race".  What does this mean?  What are the local impacts?  Too soon to tell, but let's put a little perspective on it. Joe Sestack is currently the local Pennsylvania US Representative in Congress (Brady represents a small portion of southeastern Delaware County).  He won his 2008 race last year against Republican W. Craig Williams by a vote of 209,955 (59.6%) to 142,362 (40.4%) .  He continues to be popular in the local area and won his seat originally by beating out longtime local Representati...

  Are we giving the media more control than they deserve? I mean look how easy it has become to track real estate activity based on what's reported in the media as the daily mantra. Sure there are problem areas across the country, but for the most part I believe there is pent up energy to buy real estate and many markets are in fairly decent shape with only a minimum roll back in prices from their highs. For example, we had a great September in our local market place and it looked like things were really starting to shape up, until the media starting beating the Great Depression mantra. Does anybody think for one minute in this world wide economy that the richest nation on the face of the planet is going to be let slip into a depression? Sensational journalism and fear mongering have co...
