Rapping real estate agents bust out good advice
As the housing market continues to recover, some in the business are celebrating with a few choice rhymes.
One San Diego agent is getting some attention for rapping his way through the housing crisis and the nascent market recovery. His online debut follows a rap from a Virginia agent waxing poetic about "houses gettin' sold."
Over in San Diego, Rafael Perez has made 50 videos about his business, but his friends and coworkers declared them a little bland, he tells 10News.com.

Block explains the market a little more on his blog: "Inventory of homes for sale is extremely tight in Northern Virginia -- at last look there's just over one month supply of homes on the market," he wrote "Same goes for DC. In fact, right now, much of the country is having a similar phenomenon in the local real estate markets."
Ballston condo's like gold
Two days, five offers
And we got it sold."
