Behind the Picket Fence – What is REALLY happening in real estate

May 5, 2009

I find that with today’s social media and news coverage we have a wide variety of opinions on the state of our world from various pundits.

There are prognosticators who predict the end is near, the bottom has dropped and doomsday is just around the corner. “Experts” from all fields want to tell us their idea of what is going to happen in 2009, 2010 and beyond.

Here is what I think. NO ONE REALLY KNOWS. I have listened to people share the most outlandish comments and they are wrong. I have listened to the media pummel us with negativity (sinking stocks, foreclosure mania, closing Detroit down and now swine flu). If there was no BAD news to report…they would make it up. Oh wait…I think they already do.

If I sound cynical – it is because I AM cynical. I am choosing to ignore the hyperbole, the garbage and the embellished “news” reports. I choose instead……..

HOPE

All the aforementioned things do is to create FEAR. I’m sick of fear. I am disgusted with fear. I can’t predict anything and I certainly don’t know when the good times return but I know that there is always HOPE and I’m clinging to it like a mad woman.

Won’t you join me?
