Perceptions about real estate have been skewed in recent months due to the overwhelming focus on national figures. While average sales and prices help us identify trends, the fact is all real estate is local -- conditions vary greatly from one city to the next. Unfortunately, that news is largely unreported.
Builders and Realtors cannot allow the national media to report what it deems to be the proper perspective on the value of real estate. They must get out in full force and spread, with repetition, one simple message:
"Real estate is the single best investment one can make."
