Some Good News about Real Estate and Gas Prices

If you’re like me, you’re probably just about fed up with all the doom and gloom coming from every media source. I just don’t want to hear it anymore.

Take real estate; the media keep focusing on a bad real estate market and yet I have a great year and have seen many positive things in this market. For example: Many of my seller’s homes have sold their homes in under 60 days with profitable gain and my buyers have been purchasing homes at great prices. Of course, real estate is just one of the many things the media is focused on.

So, today I thought I would write about some good things happening in our world.

In September of 2007, 769 homes were sold in Tucson and in September of 2008, wait for it……. 934 homes were sold in Tucson.

Gas prices are down and Tucson had the lowest in the nation at one point.

Attention shoppers, there is a blue light special on stocks and real estate. This sale may continue for awhile.

According to RealFacts, (a data research firm based in San Francisco) apartment occupancy rates were virtually unchanged in the third quarter of 2008. Guess what, rents hardly changed as well. One more thing, there have been almost no foreclosures on large apartment buildings.

SNL’s weekly update is funnier than ever thanks to the election.

And, If you live in Tucson, the weather is beautiful.
