I was listening to NPR Yesterday...

Yesterday as I sat watching my son's soccer game I listened to an NPR news broadcast for Utah. They were reporting that foreclosures in Utah are higher than ever, that the market is gloomy, and that sales are down. I know first hand that none of these things are true and in fact had recently posted on Facebook actual stats from the Salt Lake Board of Realtors about how the foreclosure inventory was at it's lowest level in 4 years. August home sales jumped 21 percent compared to August of last year and  August marked the 5th month of rising home prices along the Wasatch Front. I wanted to call up NPR and discuss with them where they were getting their facts. NPR is such a trusted source for reliable news, to have it reporting completely erroneous facts on the housing market was upsetting. Just a heads up to all those clinging to media interpretation of the market.... things are looking good. They are really looking good.
