And then the desperate Arizona realtors, having no understanding of real estate fundamentals or classic financial manias, got really pathetic


This is just kinda sad. A bunch of ramen-eating realtors who still don't understand that the glory days aren't coming back are gathering to do some kind of rain dance, in order to change the collective consciousness of Arizonans and Americans back to "gullible and stupid and willing to commit fraud". They also want to fight against HousingPANIC and the terrible media who is finally reporting the truth.

No, you can't make this sh*t up.

A note for these poor six-percenters:

The days of rampant mortgage fraud, easy credit, no government regulation and an easily-duped public are over. Just like your careers.

You fuc*ed America for a commission. You're hated, you're discredited, and many of you may end up in jail for fraud. You and your peers did wrong, and now you're paying the price. It's over.

And when you try to bastardize a book like "The Secret" for your own gain at the expense of others, you've hit bottom. You're shameless, you're misguided, and you just don't get it. It's not the media's fault, it's not the blogs' fault. It's your fault.

Here's a bit of this bastardized babble from the ramen eaters. Man, this is just sad.

“Like all perception, and according to the Law of Attraction, Arizona residents will be enlightened by the positive energy created by the highly publicized symposium, and the market WILL begin to change.

By saying it’s OK to buy real estate again, it’s OK to re-finance your home, it’s OK to become a first time homeowner….the exhale, relief, and then positive action taken by the residents of Arizona will reverberate nationwide.

As a group, and with the media’s help, we can turn the industry around one person, one city, one county, one state at a time."

Hey realtors here's a news flash, pay attention....

Untill the median home price = 3 to 4 times the median household income there is NO chance of a turnaround in the residential real estate market!!!!

Man you people are pathetic.

This event is a symptom of the sick and self-defeating mindset in America. "Just close your eyes and wish upon a star." That sort of magical thinking may be ok for little kids, but for masses of adults to believe that positive thinking will somehow turn the housing market is just pathetic. If our country doesn't wake up and realize that reason, discipline and work are the only things that will get us out of the mess we're in, then we don't deserve success. What we need is a good strong dose of realism, not mindless feel-good cheerleading.

I hope a lot of the people who are tired of this realtor BS will get as many of the free tickets and possible and protest at the event. How's that for positive energy?

These things are starting to look like "healing services" or camp meetings for "revival" like some holy Spirit filled congregation. Stepping out on "faith". "It's God's will for you to prosper". etc.

These 6 per cent whizzbangers (not a complimentary description) are just stupid enough to try a rain dance. I don't think they'll get any rain, though. More likely to burn the place down with all the hot air they spew.

I don't know of any businesses that have their business logo/names splattered all over a brand NEW hummer. Just saw a new yellow Hummer COVERED with some real estate firm and some clueless agent's name. Let's all say it together "PATHETIC"!

The real estate clerks left Christianity and turned to Abraham's Law of Attraction and

for their 6% commission.
Very desperate, imo.

I'm glad they were able to turn the real estate market around on the 30th.

For a while, I was a little worried.

This is beyond pathetic. Instead of praying for the accumulation of more wealth, why not pray for something more useful, like the salvation of your empty, greedy, materialistic soul-less existence.

SeattleMoose said...

I have said all along that RE salespeople are not "professionals" and associating them with the word diminishes it.

There is a reason these folks weren't able to obtain college degrees and become "professionals".

Their collective IQ has just been exposed.

In 5 years their parasitic niche in society will be a historical footnote.

Instead of trying to wish away reality, how about facing up to the truth.....you are were cutout to work a McJob and eat ramen.

Here, I'll help you. Try this chant...."Would you like fries with that?"

Things will return to the normal days of 2005 when everyone owned 5 houses and real estate appreciated at 50% per year. Banks will be handing out stated income loans to felons, homeless, and dogs again.

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

LOL! Only in Scottsdale!!

And people wonder why I rip on that town so bad?

How about this, Arizona realtors: The days of easy sham money are over. It's time for you to go out and get a real job or start a real business and start doing an honest day's work every day.

No more 6% welfare for you. The market will no longer tolerate it. Like like $3.00/minute long distance from the 1970s went away too.

This is all about MAGICAL THINKING AND REALTOR LIES.

The good news is this crap will pull a few additional fruad victems into the mix and reinforce the real depths of broker induced stealing that will be refined out of the market place as they eventually starve off due to the five year or more price defaltion ahead in Phoenix.

Well, it worked, right? The housing collapse is all better now.

This very day, every Sunday open house is thronged with cash buyers suddenly aching to pay a premium over list. As of the start of business tomorrow, all bad loans with all banks will be "adjusted" back to "easy payments." All realtors' Lexis leases will be paid this month before the repo man comes.

What a relief! Magic works so much faster than dull ol' economics. Those dreary pessimists who don't *truly* believe cause all the trouble in the world.

Gotta go--it's time for "Flip That House."

ROM said...

The funny thing about this is that the it's free to attend. The conferences that I go to, with actual real estate and banking professionals (attorneys, developers, lenders, fund managers, a few brokers) charge around $1000 to attend. For $1000 you'll hear that nothing is going to get better until 2009 and that things are going to get a lot worse. A few people are predicting 2012 as the year that everything gets back to normal. A few less people are saying that everything is fine now, that the weak dollar is good, that stocks aren't overvalued, and that Santa Claus is real.

Wow. And here I thought everything was ok in Phoenix. After all, don't people 'keep moving there for the jobs?' Don't people keep 'moving there for the good weather?' Isn't the price decline only about five percent so far?
Boy, imagine what they'll do when things actually get bad.
I'm looking for the Governor, and a few media talking heads to actually do the first blood sacrifice of a virgin in Arizona in 1500 years.
Can't wait. It'll be televised, too! Probably KPHO.

The roadrunner does a sudden 180 and quickly hides behind a rock. Meanwhile the coyote, unknowing, runs on by and past the edge of the cliff. He continues on for a minute and then, realizing the action has stopped, he halts. It is only after he looks down that he realizes the chase is over and he is hanging out over the canyon with nothing under him. Then, suddenly, he drops into the abyss. The sound of the impact is barely heard by those who stayed safely back from the edge of the cliff.

Don't know what "The Secret" is...but if it is anything like EST or Lifespring these Realtors don't even know what they are getting themselves into.

The real estate sales people are a brainwashed cult .The gravy train is over and those commissioned sales people just can't believe it. The "Black Swan" event of
a easy money cycle in real estate will not return because investors have lost to much money.These real estate people are truly pathetic to want to fraud loan cycle back again with prices that are not affordable .

OH MY GOD ......It just goes to show you how nuts the REIC is . These people are sick .....really sick .

Anybody that was thoughtful in that business would have remorse over how many borrowers they sold down a river, with all their cheer-leading and absurd investment advice . Are self-serving people usually this blind ?


Had the REALTORS refused to take people to houses they couldn't afford ,in spite of knowing the easy money lenders and appraisers would push the loan through ,than maybe the prices would of stopped going up .

These people better be praying that they don't get arrested for sitting up cash back deals and double escrowing deals, or fake bidding for that matter ,or promotion of false investment advice and false advertising ...etc..etc.

Repent sinners ....Go do public service for the downtrodden to make up for your sins against humanity . Stop wishing for higher prices and realize that you helped bring on the Greater Depression . Offer to list property for free for the Fucked borrowers you told" they could not afford to not buy". Make up for all the borrowers you sent to mortgage brokers you knew would push a fraudulent deal through .

Write letters to the NAR and ask them to tell the truth and tell them you are not going to pay the dues anymore if their Spokesman lies .

Realize that the market has come to a dead stop because people can see that the housing frenzy was false . Isn't it sad to realize that you commissioned sales people were nothing more than cheer-leaders for fraud in housing and a bogus investment scheme that had to crash . Wishing for high prices in real estate is like wishing for the rein of the devil and you already fleeced all the sheep .Repent (I'm just trying to talk their language )

Positive action? The only way to save the housing market would be if people started buying overpriced houses again with loans they couldn't possibly repay. Where's the positive in that? I hope somebody went to the event and reports back here what went on.
