This “comment du jour” by “James” was too good to pass up:
Is it me or are the comments and posters on here so much more valuable than the crap du jour on socketsite?
As Kenny said in his reply, “Totally…I feel like the point of this blog site is to try to make sense of the market, and not to TELL YOU what’s going on. That’s huge.”
I don’t know the answer to the question, but I know Kenny provided a good reply. The point here is to make sense of, educate on, and learn how to gauge this market, but also help our readers get in or out of the game of real estate. It is not to be the “anti-socketsite”, as I think SocketSite does, in fact, provide some good insight. However, real estate is a complicated game, and to be told what the market is doing by someone not actively in it (from what we can tell) is…well… a joke. You might as well take real estate tips from the Enquirer. And if you’re a Realtor, you sure as hell shouldn’t be supporting, or providing information to, a site that at one time had FSBO as a goal, clearly supports a crashing market, and freely distributes (read: poaches) information that we all pay for (think MLS), without being a member himself. But I guess some Realtors will do anything for a bit of attention now won’t they? And that’s a whole different discussion.
That’s my two cents. Thanks for the comments, and thanks for reading! Now if you just un-plug from that socket, your lights might shine a bit more brightly, we can all move on, and not have to go over this topic again.
p.s. Hi Adam.
