Quarterly Marketing Report

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

Its time to take a look at the market in Pickens County once again and so here is the Quarterly Report from the Broker and Owner of Torrey Mountain Properties, Inc., Ben L.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Ben’s report or if I can assist you in any real estate transaction.

impact of that event will occur during the first quarter of 2010 when the dealer’s
contracts are not renewed. Hopefully the recovery will be well under way by that
time so the possible increase in unemployment will not create a major downturn.
