Couple nice real estate pieces from the Times

Here and here are a couple articles for what they're worth from todays NYTimes.

One piece examines the changing desires of buyers in second home and retirement communities...less golf/tennis and more natural beaty, wildlife, bike trails, ect. I've always thought the popularity of golf was overrated. As an avid player, there are a lot of people who don't play golf. Building golf courses was popular the last 10 years in the Chicago area; there wasn't adequate demand.

The second piece is an interesting investigation of mortgage fraud in Indiana involving Countrywide Financial.
