On August 8th, 2008, we received the following comment from “firstname.lastname@example.org”. I can only guess that he/she is a Realtor:
You all are idiots, I have a buyer for this property…and no way to contact you.
Great idea, complain, complain…but offer and do nothing effective.
The comment was left on my 300 N. Altura Road post and although I’m used to constant criticisms on AHB, it still makes me wonder why people get so fired up over these blog posts. It’s not like this housing bubble was a made up story. Every single sane economist, financial guru, Wall Street analyst and media outlet will tell you that home prices across the nation are overpriced and we’re looking at steep price reductions in the current and near future.
Even data from the National Association of Realtors reflect the deteriorating housing situation we’re in.
I don’t visit other blogs and bash the author. In fact, I’m a big supporter of local bloggers and Realtors who actually know what their talking about.
But you know what? It’s ok. Whatevers. Maybe they’re just pissed off that they have 25% of the income they did in 2006 and can no longer afford to lease that 5-series bimmer and their house is underwater with an ARM that’s about to blow up next year.
