Chris Lodge, Property Information Manager at The Talon Group double checks some stats that the NY Times have came up with regarding home ownership in the Seattle area which is being picked up by the media. From Chris:
I've long championed the idea that local news and data is more valuable than what the national news gives us. So when a client of mine sent this New York Times article over to me, it definitely piqued my interest. The headline , "In Sour Home Market, Buying Often Beats Renting", is a great attention grabber for sure.
Do they believe that Seattle is a good place to buy?
