I ran across this article in Yahoo Finance today(written by CNNMoney.com).  What a great article to sum up the market not only in Ames but across the nation.  Good news is they agree the market will turn around.  Bad news is they do not know when. 

They have a great quote in this article that I use everyday when I am working with someone to sell thier home.  "Wherever you are, pricing your home right is key." 

Through my 30 years of selling real estate that has never been so true.
