“Stunned Home Buyers Find the Bidding Wars Are Back”

Wall Street Journal (April 27, 2012)

So, more than 2/3 of the way into the Spring housing market, The Wall Street Journal is running a story, today, about the reappearance of multiple offers.

Contrast that with these recent City Lakes posts (and their publication dates):

–“THAT Went Fast” (April 26, 2012)

–“It Sold in Multiples — But Will it Appraise?” (April 4, 2012)

–“Did it Sell TOO Fast?”  (March 19, 2012)

–“Disclosing Multiple Offers:  Pros & Cons” (Feb. 22, 2012)

–“Multiple Offers and Asterisk Clauses“(Feb. 14, 2012)
