It’s The End Of The Year As We Know It (And Housing Feels Fine)?

It’s 10 degrees in Connecticut right now (and I feel fine) and I’ve already had the pleasure of seeing social media photos from friends (and people I follow for no particular reason) in warm sunny places hanging out on beaches and sitting around swimming pools. But loyal readers of these Housing Notes know my contrarian ways too well. I’m headed to Michigan shortly where the temperature is below zero and there is a lot of snow on the ground, but I’ll feel warm visiting my family.

Aside from the weather, I have to say it has been a fun year (and very cathartic) writing these weekly Housing Notes – the third-anniversary of Housing Notes fast approaches in March. Readership keeps expanding and so does your valuable feedback and support. I still don’t quite know why I obsess about writing these every week but I do know it is fun and I’ve learned a lot in the process.

Best wishes to all of you and your families in 2018. May it be exciting, satisfying, productive, informative…and warm.

Happy New Year!

My New Year’s resolution is to think bigger, if not taller.
