This issue of Beyond the Headlines  features articles from the Los Angeles Business Review, “California Home Sales hit Seven Month High,” from CNN Money, “Shadow Inventory Threatens Housing Recovery,” and from the Washington Post,”JP Morgan admits Foreclosure Mistakes.” Be careful of local headlines that try to tell a national story. Recently The Herald ran a headline stating “2010 sales show further weakness.” If you read the whole article you found that sales in Northern California and in particular our coastal area have shown marked improvment. Be sure and get the whole story, not the convenient and sometimes lazy headline.
