It’s only five kilometers—a little over three miles. But you’ve never had to run from zombies before.

Is 2013 Your Year To Buy or Sell a Home? UMD Expert's Forecast
December 19

For sellers, conditions continue to build on 2012’s nascent recovery. But will credit be readily available for first-time and repeat homebuyers?  Will there be additional efforts to help struggling homeowners under water on an existing mortgage? “Looking into 2013, the ‘fiscal cliff,’ regulatory reform and other factors could put a drag on markets through the year,” adds Rossi, Tyser Teaching Fellow and executive-in-residence for the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
