Careful the headlines you read, some people might be convinced the housing market and recovery around the country is coming to a screeching halt with buyers on the fence about whether to buy a home or keep renting. The cause of this possible slowdown, some are saying that rising mortgage rates and a lack of consumer confidence could be the problem. Not true at all say our real estate friends at KCM (keepingcurrentmatters.com) -  After all 12,575 houses sold yesterday, 12,575 will sell today and 12,575 will sell tomorrow. 12,575 (National Association of Realtors’ (NAR))!

n Reston's Lake Anne Plaza, the worldly influences abound. In the central plaza, the clustered townhomes, the lone high-rise and the community-driven nature of it all, there is evidence of Italian hill country and coastal villages, of small towns in Finland and California, of Milan and Radburn, N.J., of Britain's garden cities and Greenbelt.
