Just the same, even after he agreed to “think about it,” he wouldn’t commit...

  • Review of all things Real Estate: Thoughts from 3 different eonomists

    Bob Hillery, CR Properties|Updated Feb 22, 2023

    At our local area marketing meeting Wednesday morning, it was disclosed that there were an equal number of homes pending as there were active listings; this means there is a paltry one-month supply of homes on the market.
