Yun's prediction

I kept this November 2011 article on the NAR conference that took place in Anaheim last year. I wanted to see how far off the NAR lapdog would be when he gave his predictions for this year. Here is the article

Dead on accurate with the housing market. Not so much with mortgage rates although he couldn't have imagined QE3.

Dude, I didn't see QE3 and I predicted interest rate would drop to 3.25% in 2012. Go and check out the 2012 prediction. Can I toot my own horns a little bit? :)

Win!

Can't wait til next year and 2.5%

Mortgage rates will remain low as long as the rate of purchasing remains low and the economy remains sluggish.

If / when the economy improves, rates will rise. There's no real reason to believe that they'll move in different directions over the long term.

Listening to the NAR's recommendations on RE is like asking Jeffrey Dahmer for tips on table manners.

And "rate of purchasing" will remain low as long as resale prices remain grossly inflated and distorted.

Remember.... Housing demand is at 16 year lows for a reason..... that reason is grossly inflated prices.

What's the median household income in Phoenix? What's the median house price?

Household income has nothing to do with it. Wage earner income is under $24k.

Is that a per capita figure by any chance?

Here's a hint..... it means housing prices falling to much lower levels. ;)

I know what wage earner income means, but as you quoted the per capita figure...

But apparently not in Phoenix, though of course that doesn't matter to you seeing as you don't live there.

Could you please elaborate what exactly you mean by "wage earner income"?

If you're talking about the average income of a working person in a household, you're clearly wrong.

If you're talking about the (antiquated) average income of hourly workers, you're also wrong. It's within 10% of the average according to the BLS. Hourly workers (outside of skilled trades) are also overwhelmingly not home buyers.

Instead of telling people that they're wrong, why don't you tell us WTF you mean?

While on the decline... The average annual wage in the entertainment industry was $117,000 in 2011, more than twice the average of $53,000 for all private-sector industries.

A big reason why prime LA neighborhoods have high property values.

He's easily amused. Apparently, trolling a RE forum under multiple names and continuously deleting his own posts is extremely entertaining to him. I guess his long period of unemployment in the construction industry has affected him somewhat.

That's right. Because there is profit building all sorts of things. But they all depreciate.

You're a new house pimp, working hand-in-hand with realtors.

You currently pimp lies, and you used to pimp new construction till the bottom fell out of your market. As for myself, I'm working in Kuwait in a job that has nothing to do with real estate.

How can that be when new construction is a fraction of the cost of resale housing?

You can't even keep your lies straight. Typical used house pimp.... and can't even be truthful about that.

Contact Deepak Chopra. I'm sure he can give you some bullshit spiritual guidance to make up for all those years you gorged yourself at the trough of the housing bubble. You new construction pimps just fleeced all those poor misguided individuals who were led down the path of debt by nice new marble counter tops installed by pimping contractors like yourself.

Why should I believe you? You're a builder - a profession ranked right up there with realtors for untrustworthiness. All of you involved in the real estate business are neck deep in it, all of you, and that's why you keep flapping around this forum spouting your nonsense - you're covering for the shame and guilt you feel for the part you played in bilking so many people during the housing bubble. Shame on you, you new construction pimp.

Please point me at the builders building houses that aren't total pieces of shit building new construction at "a fraction of the cost of resale housing". I'll even allow for owner/builders acting as GC. Well, I suppose 99/100 is a fraction.

Houses depreciate, but the price of lumber, concrete, rebar, ceramic tiles, and carpets keeps increasing. Not to mention labor.

I've yet to see an example of a new home built for under $175/sf around here that compares to my home that is "worth" $175/sf -- and that includes the value of the land!

New construction is vastly more expensive than buying an existing home. It costs $400/sqft to build something that isn't a shithole in the SF Bay Area. And you need to buy the land of course. Contractors are one of the slimiest group of people I know, way worse than realtors. They will lie to your face and shake your hand on it.

I considered building there and I think $200/ sf is possible, but you'll still need to pay$350-400k for a 4000 sf lot with a condemned asbestos and lead hazard on it. Total costs easily over $400/sf
