You know I've been pretty lax about linking to the carnival of real estate lately. Either I've been too busy or I'm not sure I like what everyone seems to be doing with changing the rules every week. I've certainly stopped entering articles for now (that's from being busy).
I noticed the BloodhoundBlog linked to this article that is among this weeks carnival. It is really worth checking out as it speaks to more than just simple economic factors that are affecting today's real estate market. See the article here.
