The Friday Five for March 15th.
Today is the Ides of March and is commonly known as the date on that Julius Caesar was assassinated (back in 44 BC). On his way to the senate, a group of conspirators, led by Brutus and Cassius, stabbed Caesar to death. He probably should have taken a different route because earlier in the week a seer had warned that harm would come to him no later than the Ides of March. So what’s the real estate lesson here?
