HP has a lot of REIC readers based on the email I get and some of our comments. Not all of them are arrogant lying deceptive jerks in denial (like certain clueless realtor bloggers we know). No, some of them actually know what's hit them and look to HP for a read on the market (as they look for new work).
So this thread is for you. How bad is it? How much less are you making this year than during the peak? Are you looking for work? Who do you blame for the crash? And for the love of god realtors why do you send money to the NAR every year?
