It's been a tough, tough real estate market this spring. Buyers are indecisive, sellers are defensive and most real estate agents are just plain grumpy. In previous years, I've sold as many as five houses in a week during the spring and as many as 7 during the month of March. This year, I've only put together a total of five transactions in first 15 weeks of the year.
So I was feeling a bit blue this morning when I pulled up to the gas pump. Fortunately, I glanced up and notice the person at the pump before me paid $72.83 to fill up. And suddenly the $39.42 to fill up my not-so-fancy Pontiac Vibe seemed like a pure blessing.
