That Was Then: Charles Turner

Remember when the bubble heads were laughed at because real estate never goes down?

I think it is time to turn the tables and pull out some great quotes from local pundits who cheered the market along.

Here is our first quote:

In the last couple of weeks, we've seen much more real estate activity that we expected. Buyers are returning to the market after a period when it seemed prudent to sit back and watch the market. Some expected depreciation to soften the market and make that dream home more affordable.
Since the market has retained its strength, sitting back doesn't look like a smart bet. Usually people put off real estate during the holidays and start in earnest in the New Year.
