Don't believe the hype!

There is a little known saying inside media circles. "If it doesn't bleed, it doesn't read!" This is more true than most of us realize. As humans, we often have a fascination with the morbid. Why do you think that most of what's in the papers and on the news is dark and depressing? We all hate hearing awful things, but it gives us conversation material around the water coolers at work. "Wasn't that awful what happened on the news last night?" or "Did you hear about Brittney/Pam and Tommy/Paris/INSERT ANY CELEBRITY NAME HERE?"

In the interest of bringing you fact, not fiction, this year's market report is now out and viewable simply by clicking on the title of this post. It gives you hard facts about the state of the market in this city right now amidst all of the "bubble" speculation and with other housing markets in the country suffering.

I figured after a month off from writing, I'd give you a double whammy of data today. I hope that you all enjoy these posts today as they are extremely resourceful.
