Carnival Of Real Estate - The Tomato Edition
I am not complaining. Really, I'm not... but 38 blog articles to read on a Sunday? Wow. Be careful what you ask for when hosting this rapidly growing carnival. Great job everybody. In an effort to give everyone who submitted an opportunity to be read, I chose to post all the articles below. However, the Top 12 fall into a subjective order of the best articles this Carnival has to offer. Beyond that dozen, I just threw darts at pinned balloons.
