Either they're truly braindead clueless ignorant fools (which would make sense given their lack of education beyond GED's), or they know exactly what's going on and just put on a happy face when they all get together or talk to the media.
So which is it?
About 12,000 Realtors gathered in Long Beach for three days last week to hear the fate of the market at the California Realtor Expo 2006 at the convention center.
A housing report delivered at the conference on Wednesday forecast the median home price to fall slightly for the first time in 10 years.
But most Realtors spoken with at the conference viewed the market with optimism, as did those who compiled the numbers.
In fact, it was hard to find anyone at the conference who was down on housing, including three of the state's top housing experts, who spoke at the conference on Thursday at a panel discussion titled "Twists and Turns: Leading Economists Sound off on Today's Market."
"In my mind it's not a disaster in the making, it's just a normal balancing of the market," Karevoll said.
"You have a lot of media wanting to put a negative spin on the numbers," Kyser said.
