Couldn't have said it any better. Very well written with guidance on terminology a key to set the table for future confidence in the housing market for the consumer. This is actually a great time for Realtor's across the board to showcase their acquired skills, talents, and knowledge to buyers and sellers to reinforce the fact that a good Realtor is worth his/her weight in gold.

Where are the first time home buyers? I have had 6 cancel this year due to tightening mortgage standards, their existing townhouse has lost all of it's equity, they are in no hurry to buy since prices are not going up, they want to change jobs or find a job, and they have HUGE school loans. Plus, they can live at home free while they are paying their debt. Since we are in a reclining market, they have to have a bigger downpayment.
