Below is a summary from my Twitter account from most recent back. Generally I will post articles that I think are relevant and interesting to my Real Estate  business or about what I am doing at that time. Most of the news I track is to help me understand the market so I can make better and more informed decisions.

When looking at news articles I like to find items that are relevant to apartment investing/ownership, the housing market and how it may affect the flipping and rental business. I place more importance on local rather than national if one were to conflict with the other since something that is happening in Florida may not be as important as events happening in West which may not be as important as California, which may not be as important to Southern California, which may not be as important as events that are happening in San Diego.

If you wonder why items are abbreviated it is because Twitter only allows 140 characters.

Just click on the links to go to the actual article or twitter post.
