Average Buyer Turns 2

Hard to believe its been two years since my first blog post. In some ways, that first post doesn't really seem all that long ago....but at the same time, a lot has happened since then. When I started blogging, I didn't realize people could actually "find you" if you linked to their site. I figured I would type away in complete obscurity, till I eventually found a home to call my own.

But that was not what fate had in store for me (well Lander actually). With that link, my obscurity vanished, and I soon realized I wasn't alone in my frustrations.

While it may seem cheesy or cliche to thank those who read and comment on the blog, I am still going to do it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am truly grateful for the community we have developed. I have learned a tremendous amount over the last two years, you all have given me great comfort, and most importantly, I managed to wait (not always patiently) for our dream home to come along.

Also thanks to those who filled out the survey. From the results, I gather staying focused on Sac Metro RE, with a smattering of posts on national econ, and some buyer/seller issues thrown in is the way to go.

Thank you and please don't quit. I've learned a lot here. I even learned that you have to book yosemite campgrounds this time of year. Unfortunately, yeseterdat I woke up early and booked at Wawona by accident which is really no where near the yosemite valley.

Thanks all. Unfortunately its a lot harder to come up with good RE material now that so many of my data sources have dried up. Argh!

At least Housing Tracker is back.

Sactia - About Yosemite...we had to get online for Upper/Lower Pines in July, on our moving day in Feb. We had at least 5 people trying, and only got 2 sites this year. They were gone within seconds. My brother usually stays at Wawona (they have a wee one)'s supposed to be very nice. From what I hear, you can get camp sites in places like Tuolumne Meadows much easier. Good luck. We always go in July...rivers aren't too cold, weather isn't too hot. Truly one of the most magnificent places on earth.
