We’re enjoying these last few weeks of 2013, and reflecting on what a great year it’s been and, of course, all the things we’re excited about in 2014. And the list keeps getting longer and longer!

Despite all of the holiday goings on, it’s been a busy week for real estate. CoreLogic reports thatmore and more prospective homeowners continue to rent, now topping 35% of all U.S. households—and rent affordability is at an all-time low. Is now the time to stop renting and look to buy?
