It's hard to know what is truth with all these shady polls and news reports coming out. So, I'd love to know how the market is doing around the US (and the world). I know here in Florida, the housing market was hit really bad. A few years ago, I took a road trip down the west coast of Florida and was surprised how many ghost towns were created because of the crash. It's starting to pick up. Slowly. Prices are also starting to increase. What about you and your area?
