Being born in the 70's I grew up as part of Generation X. My parents on the other hand are members of the Baby Boom generation. It amazes me how much things have changed between a single generation.

I'd like to acknowledge Brandon Moore, CEO of REaltyTrac for his clear understanding of the statistics and giving an honest and clear picture o...
