This year we are all freshly bombarded with exploding images of “Homes For Sale.” In case you hadn’t noticed, Connecticut homes are in great demand.

In a free market economy, value is the chum in the water for those seeking a profit. The real estate market has exploded in this bubble. Until that bubble bursts, the marketing of homes is unavoidable, no matter how devoted you are to your present home. As with every housing market since World War II, fads, trends and visual sound bites hype every real estate ad.
