Heath, are you looking for just reported news or blogs that we write that recount a positive experience or have a positive slant? Steve

Posted by Steve Hoffacker, Certified Aging In Place Specialist-Instructor (Steve Hoffacker LLC) almost 12 years ago

Hi Steve.  Reported news is sometimes contorted to be negative.  An example would be the report titled, "Widespread House Price Declines in Fourth Quarter" when the data in the report actually shows that 40 of 50 states had price APPRECIATION in 2007.

This kind of reporting is antagonistic to real estate when it could be encouraging.  The author of the report, or the places it is used can be noted in this group and members can go and comment or email the author to encourage a different perspective.  Zil lo w does this with negative comments about them - the word goes out and positive z comments get placed to over come (or overwhelm) the negative.  Lets do it for real estate.

Blogs are fine if they are about market conditions, but experiences with customers or deals are probably better handled in other groups.

I know we have had mostly negative news over the past couple of years.  However, I see things slowly getting better at least here in AZ.  It would be nice to see a place where a positive interpretation of a given set of data can be presented.  It seems as you said that no matter what the numbers say, most news sorces put a negative spin on.

by the way, Do you have an outside blog that I can add to my Blogroll ?

Thanks and look forward to reading your thoughts on the world of real estate.

Thanx James.  I just use the AR blog right now.  (But, you could link to REindex.com.  I'll be looking at you sites to see where you all can be linked from there.  Watch the youtube .)

Welcome to you all.

We're in! We are choosing to be positive and look for ways to do business, not complain and whine. I saw a sign on a church recently nearby that said "when you complain, you remain". Thanks for organizing this group to put a positive spin on things!

I will join. I like postive stories.

What an interesting idea and I have to say I'm in, way to often we see things that could have been reported positive but were reported negatively because it sounds better in a sound bite on the six o'clock news.

Welcome Mindy and Jay, and Todd.  I was watching "squak box" this morning and heard four different developers saying positive things about the US real estate market.  I will look for some postable notes for the group.
