By Chris Clothier on Tue, Apr 5, 2011

Many of the recent articles you read on the housing market seem to convey almost polar opposite messages.  Markets are up, other markets are down and no two pollsters, spinsters or prognosticators seem to agree on exactly what is happening.  Real Estate Investors have to get past all the white noise of the national housing market and get down to the fundamentals of particular markets that provide quality, stable investment opportunities.
