Patrick- Interesting article. If I am reading it correctly - the real estate prices here on Long Island should drop soon. Since the prices here are inflated, ($650K for a cape) this should stimulate the market and increase business. That works for me.

Cincinnati at 6% - I’m for that. My home has nearly doubled


over the last ten years - but it means nothing if I don't sell it-

which I won't. But it's nice to see Im not at much risk of losing

on the place if I do sell - which I won't..

Yes boring is good. I was just poking fun at the midwest conservative thinking( I am originally from WI..Go Packers) Being a FL for 12 years I shake my head at our Real Estate $$$ and where they are going...I love it though!!!!

You are missing a great lunch by not having those things. Plus, it is a good comedy show to watch the guys who write WDO's wrestle with them!!

One should also be aware that, here in Illinois, only about 30 - 35% of the residential home sales have inspections. So that means that there will be a 65 - 70% increase in inspections when other people learn of the benefits of an inspection and / or when the state makes them manditory, as it is rumored to do, next year.
