Election Day is less than 2 months away. There will be extra emphasis on jobs and unemployment as we move closer to the election. Because there is a relationship between jobs and housing, it's important for those in real estate to stay tuned in to what the politicians and economists have to say. With that being said, 2012 has been a good year in the real estate market so far and there is good reason to remain optimistic from this point forward.
