Moreland Branch Meeting 6-2-2014

For your Blog:

 Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire, Email is hanging from a Telephone Wire! Quick read on how to possibly spot if someone is not telling the truth in an email. I’m going to have to be really careful on #5 of this list since I do ‘blah blah’ on occasion. J

So….. How much do you need to make to buy a home?   This chart is SO cool. 27 cities show the income needed to buy a median priced home. It also gives you an idea of the wage scales all over the country.

Three words I love to hear……. Portland BEATS Seattle! Those couch potatoes are no match for the third fittest city in the country for the second year in a row!
