A Little Fun From Coldwell Banker - What's Your Sign?

What's your sign?  No, not your horoscope sign.  Your real estate sign!  That is what Coldwell Banker is hoping to help you discover by taking the HOUSETROLOGY quiz on their website.  In just seven questions you can find out if you are a Urbanist, a Contemporarian or maybe a Ranchero. 

Turns out I am a Urbanist.  Who knew?  Well, maybe I did since I live in the heart of Chicago and my neighbor's house is about three feet away from mine.... 

Take the quiz at http://www.coldwellbanker.com/home/learn/housetrology/housetrology_landing.jsp


PS- Big bonus points to Coldwell Banker for making this quiz an application easily added to a Facebook page!  Great way to attempt to make it viral.
