On the road again ...
Just returned from traveling, and we must report that real estate is still the "hot topic" of conversation! Prices, continued development and construction, and ... gas prices! That's right - gas and real estate.
Think about it. Not only is the price of gas affecting the cost of commuting, but also the dollars spent on housing. By taking precious dollars out of one's wallet to pay for gas, there is less money left in the budget for housing.
Affordable housing and availability of jobs are still the main concerns when talking with people who have moved across state lines. Taxes follow shortly thereafter, with quality of life factoring in the equation as well.
