Real Estate Market Update: The Medieval Investor

Carcassonne, a medieval town dating back to 200 B.C., was discovered by the Roman army due to its rocky hilltop that offered the perfect strategical observation and defensive positions. The Romans began to build a fortified city on the hill and over the next 2000 years, it evolved into the impressive walled city of Carcassonne.

Real Estate Market Update: Overvalued Or Bubble

Last week I was fortunate enough to spend a few days in hot and sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. After the horrible winter we experienced on the West Coast and a spring season that is still in hibernation, the 38 degree Celsius heat was therapeutic to my body, mind, and soul.
