Regular readers may be wondering where this month's Current Market Conditions report is. Well, its coming. But for the last week, I've been slammed busy. The pickup started in mid to late July, with a steady stream of email and phone inquiries about property. This weekend, for the first time in months, I'm fully booked with appointments, and people are already starting to book ahead for the next few weekends in August. I'm hearing very similar reports from other agents I'm talking with. It sure helps that the economic news seems to be getting better. The stock market has been shooting up, oil prices have been plummeting, and the dollar is even gaining ground against the Euro.
