    I agree with this article on more fronts than just Miami. There are positive real estate transactions taking place in several major markets, but the doom and gloom (national) reporting has implied the entire industry has shut down and no one can obtain full value for their home which just isn’t true. Yes, things have slowed a ton but not to the level every major market has folded the tent.

    My personal belief is the wost is behind us and things will pick up again this spring. I’m basing this on empirical evidence versus a statistical analysis so I hope I don’t get roasted for sharing an opinion that isn’t rooted in hours of stat scrubbing. :wink:

    It is true that the realtors are very conscious about these articles though there are some problems but these brokers are always ready to provide their best service of real estate anytime and most of them are very nice provider.
