new home sales at 1-year high (but less than forecast)

Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) By Bob Willis
Sales of new homes climbed in August to the highest level in almost a year as builders cut their

prices to compete with the foreclosures now flooding the market with previously owned homes.
Home sales increased 0.7% to an annualized pace of 429,000 units; assisted in part by first-time buyers taking advantage of tax credits before the November deadline. But that figure was still less than had been anticipated. Federal Reserve policy makers this week pledged to keep borrowing costs low to sustain the recovery past the time when the government stimulus measures wane. Thanks for nothing.

    If you hire a new lawyer, your new lawyer should take care of the process of getting your file from your former lawyer and getting any necessary substitution of counsel filed with the court.

    You can hire any lawyer you want, as long as they’re licensed to practice in the court where your case is pending, but hiring one near the courthouse can save you from having to pay for your lawyer’s travel time.
