“Hot Housing Market Could Cool Off in 2018”
–USA Today headline (12/28/17).
Long-time readers of this blog know that I put very little credence in supposed experts’ predictions (or anyone else’s, for that matter 🙂 ).**
Whenever I see a headline like the one in USA Today this morning, I’m reminded of a colleague’s long-ago reaction to an investment property on MLS, where the listing agent helpfully suggested that “rents could be higher.”
“Or, they could be lower . . . ,” my colleague deadpanned.
**I think Yogi Berra had it just about right. His line: “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”
My runner-up favorite: The Onion’s send-up of — you guessed it — USA Today. Sample headline: “Puppies — Dogs of the Future??”
