Yesterday afternoon turned out to be a snow-day here in Northern Virginia; all of my kids were home and no one was going anywhere. I made a cup of coffee and sat down to ActiveRain.
I was pleasantly surprised to run across two really great posts about getting the economy and real estate markets moving and I wanted to share these.
The first was by Al Maxwell of Atlanta, GA. He provided a really great discussion about why consumers should 'move up,' even if it looks like they will lose equity by selling their current home. I provide the link below, because I think that we as consumers need to start looking at the big picture--and stop living our lives in the shadow of the media panic.

The second was a post by Lance Winslow of Malibu, CA. His contention is that by shoring up consumer confidence folks will be more comfortable spending money, which will in turn make a positive impact on the economy.

Besides the government giving us 'spending money,' the ideas in these posts present ways to get the economy moving again. It is time for all of us to stop reacting to the media and start the economy back on the road to health!
