REading Great Summer Reading While Its Still Summer

Where did the summer go?  Hopefully yours was more relaxing than mine.  Most of my time was spent on the road in congested airports and packed planes as I visited many, many great Coldwell Banker companies.  I can attest that if you looked only at airport useage our economy must be well on its way to improving.

I know many of those travelers brought along books that were listed on those summer “must” reads lists.  And since we have one more weekend to “unofficially” enjoy summer, I wanted to add another “must” read for those interested in home ownership.  It’s a recent New York Times op-ed by Karl Case, a professor emeritus of  economics at Wellesley and co-creator of Standard & Poor’s Case-Shiller housing index.

He explains in simple-to-understand language what happened in housing and why the American Dream of Homeownership is not dead and is poised for nice, steady long-term growth.

Enjoy the article as you sit back and hopefully relax this weekend.  Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
