Some Good News for a Change

A quick summary of some positives in the world of finance and real estate today:

- WSJ.com is reporting that Bargain Hunters Help Shrink Housing Glut. Many believe that once supply shrinks and multiple offers become the norm, prices will start increasing again and the "bottom" will have come and gone. Northern Virginia is specifically mentioned in this article.

- A Fairfield, OH gas station was selling gas at $1.99 a gallon yesterday.

- Overseas markets closed strong and up yesterday. US Stock market should open strong.

- The weather is so dreary in the Mid-Atlantic region, it is sure to be a productive day (how's that for turning a negative into a positive!)

The "market" is what each agent, loan officer, title rep -- or any professional -- has in front of him or her. Each morning the sun will come up (OK, except for today), and new opportunities will present themselves. Who dares take advantage?
