Tampa, Fl – September 13, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — As many in the various professions in the real estate arena will verify, the reality from those in the trenches, is that the market is just not getting better. As someone who has completed 400 successful real estate transactions in a 14 year career in 2 states, I’d say I know more than all of the economists and newscasters put together trying to get a handle on things. I can produce plenty of Realtors, home inspectors and mortgage professionals who can give you a better idea of how to come out of these downward trends. I wouldn’t be so quick to blame these professionals on our current economic woes as most do not realize they are morally guided by their buyers and sellers and cannot make decisions for them.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 23, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. economy has made moderate gains in several key categories over the past few months. GDP growth has been positive, though hovering around 1% per quarter. Unemployment has leveled off as job losses have been abated, but the domestic hiring engine has sputtered of late. Corporate earnings have soared this past quarter by some 35 to 40% year-over-year, but growth overseas has been the winner while domestic production has remained flat. Consumer spending has always dragged our economy out of recession in the past, but retail sales show only marginal growth, and the sale of new homes are over 40% below where they were fifteen years ago.
The size of new U.S. single-family homes completed in 2009 declined, dropping to a nationwide average of 2,438 square feet and reversing trend of the past three decades, according to a National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). New single-family homes were almost 100 square feet smaller in 2009 than they were [...]

Grand Rapids, MI – June 8, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — If there is one other factor, apart from the usually high price involved, that discourages an individual from buying a property is the fear of being duped. Being duped into buying a property worth less than what is the offer price, property with not too clear titles and so on. One is never sure, if they made the right purchase, if they have considered all the alternatives and if they could buy it for a lesser price. Real estate agents can’t be trusted blindly, since they act for seller of property as well and they are keen on making a sale, buyers’ interests be damned.
