Warren Buffet is buying. Of course we are referring to stocks, not real estate. However, I could not help but think of the Sarasota real estate market when I read his recent quote about his investment strategy.

"A simple rule dictates my buying: Be fearful when others are greedy, and be greedy when others are fearful.  And most certainly, fear is now widespread, gripping even seasoned investors." - Warren Buffet
