What a Month

All, again sorry for the inactivity. Good news though. Three days before all of this financial craziness I managed to sell (close of escrow) my prior home. The escrow craziness and a year long adventure to try to sell this house is over with. Now onward with the home shopping!

Isn't it interesting that the stock market has dropped back to a 2004 level? This reflects almost exactly the housing market, which in price terms has dropped to a 2004 or even a 2003 level. It is almost as if the disappearance in value from the real estate market has been matched by the loss in value of the USA stock market. Coincidence? Or linkage? I think linkage.
