~~~I got an e-mail from the attorney representing the seller in a transaction which stated: Re the termite exam, the time to request runs from the date of receipt. I won't hold you to strict compliance but don't dawdle.
“Don’t dawdle”--does anyone say that to someone over four years old? And does it ever apply in a professional communication?
~~~January is traditionally a slow month for real estate transactions. This month, however, is moribund. I am highly apprehensive about our economy’s short-term future, and I am quite nervous about mine as well.

~~~ No one I know bought much of anything in December, yet for almost two weeks I heard retail sales were “strong.” Really? The Commerce Department says sales fell .3%, which near as I can figure is not encouraging.
~~~ I got an e-mail from a real estate agent urging me to show my clients how it was beneficial for them to buy now instead of waiting for an “inevitable” drop in values of another 10%. His reasoning was that the “expected” rise in interest rates plus the loss of the tax credit meant [once again] “this is the best time to buy!” I never liked Koolaid before and I won’t start drinking it now.
~~~ Have a great weekend! Let’s keep the chant (and the season) going:
J!-E!-T!-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
