The last couple postings, I have covered the topic of how the real estate field is slightly shifting.From mortages being handled by smaller establishments as well as the large monopolies, to construction focuses backing away form multi-family structures and beginning to focus back on homes; this ...
The new year brings new strategies, budgets, and outlooks on where you want to be by the end of the year. The housing marketing in 2013 was actually a very productive one.Even with an iffy-economy and unemployment rate, new houses and structures were still popping up around the country. When look...
