How are we doing???

If our government continues to ignore our budget problems that we have today, we will be in the same credit classification as Greece.  Once we loose our credibility, things will be more expensive.  Something has to be done.  

Although our budget is operating at a 60 % deficit, home sales have increased and is on track to out perform last year.  This increase is fueled by homes being more affordable, historically low interest rates, and lower unemployment, according to Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist.  April did show signs of  our economy improving but the housing industry is still fragile

Even though we have an increase in sales, the values of the homes have dropped 3% in the first quarter of 2011, which makes this decline the largest since 2008. 

With all this going on, it’s still a great time to make that investment in the “Great American Dream”.
