Well, NAR released the August 2012 existing home sale numbers  today. Yawn.
More importantly, it’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day  and I’ve marked this day on my calendar for nearly as long as the 10-year run it’s had. Just mentioning the annual event to my kids makes them worry about me and yet be embarrassed for me at the the same time.
And yes, home sales are up. [Pirate talk translator ]
