I am not a politician, nor am I usually this vocal or comment this strongly about anything but I feel this needs to be said.
It is really sad what greed has done to our country. The consideration for our fellow neighbors and friends have been seriously clouded by the "Love of Money". I do hope for the best outcome for our country and everyone who lives in it.
One fact that cannot be overlooked is that there have ALWAYS been foreclosed properties to deal with and always will be regardless of the economic condition of the business or our country. If anyone thinks that they are going to cycle themselves out of existence and things are going to return to the way they were they have not been in the business very long.
We, as REALTORS, along with lenders and asset managers, should do everything that we can, however, to curb pending foreclosures and liquidate the others in a timely manor in order to salvage what we can of our country's equity and wealth. We are the only effective help this country has. Having a "gloom & doom" attitude will not contribute anything to the solution.
We, as Americans have been positive minded fighters and this country was founded and grown on optimism. Get over it! This is the day and time that we live in. Business has forever changed. Let's not dwell on what we cannot change or the way it used to be, but move forward to be a part of the solution. Happy Selling!
