Everybody "knows" that these are tough times in the real estate market. But perhaps not as bad as you might think. This corner of The Barbershop is reserved for people who are facing one of life's biggest decisions--buying or selling a home. Rather than a place of gloom, it reflects a positive attitude, that if you want to buy or sell, things are not as bad as everyone believes. For buyers, it couldn't be better, with the lowest prices and interest rates and the largest inventory of available homes in more than a decade. For sellers: Fear not. With the right marketing and a realistic approach, you can sell your home.
