Will Bin Laden's Death Effect The Housing Market?

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

Right now I think it is too early to tell.  

I thought it would be interesteing to see how others felt.  Seeing Americans around the country celebrating and being patriotic again did provide me with a glimmer of hope.  I think it all depends on whether or not there is a retalliation or not.

We need to feel safe at home and then some of our old confidences will be back.  Will it ever be the same again?  I really doubt it.  The safety we felt before will never be fully restored.  

I would be great to see consumer confidence return and our great nation pull together again.  Until we become concerned about others and less self centered this cannot happen.  

The key to the strong return of the housing market can be summed up in one word, Confidence, 

Confidence in our Government

Confidence in our Economy

Confidence in our Fellow Citizens

Confidence in our Security

These are the building blocks that will return our market to greatness.

With these we will be great again.

I don't think his death means all that much.  Here's hoping that it does though.

Michael, I don't think it will have much impact, but it may well positiively increase consumer confidence in some way.

Oh please don't confuse confidence in my military with confidence in our government.  They aren't the same.

I don't remember mentionaing anything about the military.  I am very proud, confident, and suppportive of all our military. 

I did mention security.  If you say you feel as secure today as you did 10-15 years ago then you are in the minority.
