Back to the future: Preparing for '06 housing market

Guest perspective: A glance back at 2005 can make 2006 more profitable

Here’s what I want you to know: History can be an extraordinary teacher.

The philosopher George Santayana, in 1906, wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” And today, almost exactly 100 years later, those words hold just as much truth as they did then – especially for Realtors working to grow their business.

Yes, 2006 is breathing down our necks. And it can be tempting to move ahead and start planning to make next year a good one.
