Boy...it’s HOT, &
Not Just Outside!
You don't have to be a weather person to predict the weather this time of year. We all know… it's the hottest time of the year. But that’s not all that’s hot. The economy is red hot too. By all measures the best economy in 20 years or so.
This is GOOD for most reading this, but there will be some exceptions. There always are. An example could be someone will sell a house and make out great, meaning a buyer pays a bit more than they would have not too long ago. And in some areas, the opposite happens.

RED HOT Opportunities!
How does this impact you? Well, it is a HOT time to invest in real estate. Single-fa ...
