Do you ever check out realtor blogs or realtytimes and wonder to yourself, are these people this clueless, or do they simply think that by ignoring the problem, it'll just go away?
Seriously, there's an alternative reality out there today - they call it the "re.net", and they give themselves lots of awards, but they never, EVER, discuss what's really going on out there. It's always a great time to buy or sell a home ya know!
Note to realtors - want to have a shot at making money again? Just tell the damn truth. America hates liars. Trust me, you'll stand out from your crowd. Here's a new marketing pitch for ya - give it a shot!
"Now is a HORRIBLE time to buy a home - it's called 'catching a falling knife'. But maybe I can help you find a sick deal out there, one that even has positive cash flow. And if you 'own' a home and want to preserve any of the equity you have left, get it on the market NOW, price it TO SELL FAST, and let's get you out from under that depreciating debt-trap ASAP!! This market is CRASHING, it's only going to get worse, so the time to move is NOW!"
