Boo hoo?

Many were ultra-greedy, spending money frivolously on themselves, while not giving any care to those in poverty. I hope and pray that these economic trials many are experiencing will result in less greed and greater compassion.

Bigger homes equates to irresponsible living and energy hogs.

"I really think we have to re-think in real estate and work harder for this," said D'Arro,"

Yea, start by giving a real estate agent 1%, or less.

She misspoke. I think she meant to say "we have to re-think in real estate and actually do some work for this".

It all comes down to salary and the ability to secure financing. It's sad that my husband and I jointly make 200K+ but can't afford a modest 3/2.

you are so right! not only were many ultra greedy (bob brutyn) and not giving any thought to those less fortunate, they also did NOT care about the hard working people they had running their businesses (bob brutyn) and now that things are really bad, homes are going into foreclosure and short sale right (bob brutyn)? its what happens when you buy something you cant afford!!!!!!!!

The IJ has run more articles about Marin real estate prices than anything else. Quite annoying and somewhat sad that it seems to place such a high importance on monthly fluctuations.
