QUOTE OF THE WEEK… “If I had permitted my failures…to discourage me, I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress.”–Calvin Coolidge, 30th U.S. President

INFO THAT HITS US WHERE WE LIVE… Those of us who haven’t been discouraged by the housing market these past few years, can now see the progress we helped to achieve. Last week, more good news came regarding home prices. A leading data aggregator reported national home prices were UP 9.7% in January versus a year ago, the biggest annual increase since April 2006. And the 0.7% monthly advance they posted was their 11th in a row. Many observers feel these price gains will likely boost home sales during the first half of the year.

In addition, asking prices of homes listed for sale on a major online real estate portal were up compared to a year ago in 90 of the top 100 U.S. metros. The asking price gains for February were the largest since the recession began, UP 1.4% for the month and UP 7% versus a year ago. Their chief economist commented, “…buyers face a dilemma between buying now before prices rise even more, or later this year, when they’ll have more inventory to chose from.”

BUSINESS TIP OF THE WEEK… Think about what works well in your business, then focus on ways to improve it. It’s easier to make changes to something that’s functioning well, and making a good thing better can really pay off.
