Here is some good new, with a little bad news about gas prices, just announced via CNN:

"The Dow on Tuesday closed above 13,000 for the first time since May 2008 after a 25-point gain on lower crude prices and a strong consumer report.

While the 13,000 level is not considered technically significant, it is a psychological milestone.

Investors have been keeping a close watch on the oil market, where crude futures rose almost 9% in seven consecutive days, settling at a nine-month high above $109 a barrel Friday, amid concerns about increased tensions between Iran and Western powers. 

The rise in oil prices has translated into higher gas prices, with the national average rising for 21 straight days."

These were two bedroom condos within walking distance of the honky tonk bars on Broadway and were between $250,000 to $350,000.

This has to be a story that is of interest to everyone because the housing market is effectively the heart of the nations economy and the healthier the real estate market the better the over all financial health of the USA.

His topic was the national housing market, including an analysis of where it stands and where it's going:

I have condo under contract in Riverstone for some first time home buyers.

I have been taking out another first time buyer looking at houses and condos in Franklin and I'm pretty sure we will put an offer on one soon.

I set up another first time buyer with an appointment with Armando San Miguel at Brand Mortgage to discuss their loan options. This was a great appointment to show possible clients what they can buy when they are paying just as much in rent if not more. 

I have a client coming in from Iowa on Monday whom I've taken out a few times to hopefully make a decision on a home in the Gallatin and Portland area. He is even considering a custom home and we will meet with the builder next week $150,000-$200,000. 

Then I have a client coming
