In this week's Real Estate News in Brief... we have a recession forecast, the average tax refund, and a really good reason to exercise!
We begin with economic news from this past week, and a report that shows a rebound in economic growth. The Conference Board says the leading economic index was up .4% in March. That’s after a less-than-spectacular .1% increase in February, and a flat reading in January. MarketWatch economists say the growth spurt is due to the strong job market and high stock prices.
