This is still a great market in most areas of the country. I could write an article right now, quoting hard facts and statistics, to back that up. It would be just as truthful as what the Post just ran.
The only really alarming number is the inventory, and even that's still not out-of-line with historical standards, at least not in the DC area. If sales are dropping, that's only relative t...eal estate investing and not stock investing? The print media relies heavily on real estate for income, far more than on stocks.
P.S. Try reading two newspapers or watching two evening news broadcasts. I'm not claiming it's a conspiracy exactly, but there's a lot more similarities than one might expect. The lead stories are often all exactly the same and they're not what I would've chosen.

    I want to attend a technical school (2 year university) in Florida very soon just to live down there for awhile and get out of SC. Does anyone know of a good community college somewhere in Florida? It is a huge state, obviously, and I have only been there twice so I need a lot of help narrowing down all of the cities. All opinions welcome!!! Please and thank you.

    • Hello...native floridian I see you are in Charleston. I am currently living in Savannah and moving back to florida later this year. As far as cost of living it is cheaper to live north of Palm Beach area. As f …our closer to beach. Lot like Savannah compared to Tybee Island which you may understand. Traffic is horrible in Orlando and its burbs. But if you are next to Boca in cities that I mentioned commute is minimum. Good Luck.
