Two years ago, it was "there is no housing or credit bubble - you're all a bunch of wackos", "Bubbles are for bathtubs", Chicken Little may wail", and "Are you missing the real estate boom?".
Housing market in the early days of a historic implosion after the biggest credit and real estate bubble in recorded human history

Lazy MSM switching from "can't miss with housing" fluff pieces quoting realtors to "you're better off renting" articles quoting Peter Schiff

It's been a fun ride so far HP'ers. Two years, 6 million views and nearly 4,000 posts later. Some days I feel our work is done, other days I think it's just getting started.
HP is a volunteer effort, and a gift to future generations who one day will again be able to save up a modest down payment, buy a home (without a realtor on commission) that they can comfortably afford, and treat their house as a home, not as a lottery ticket, and not as an ATM.
The REIC hates us, as we've helped expose the scam, and we're costing them commissions. So be it. But the people have a voice now, thanks to the bubble blogs, and the days of unchecked realtor disinformation are over. Even if the MSM doesn't do their job, we will.
Cheers to you all for participating and reading. Screw the housing bubble, and screw the REIC! Now let's get this crash over with so we can move on.
