Do you ever feel like Britney Spears?

Real Estate Agent with Windermere

Well, as far as Real Estate and the economy goes?

 As an American citizen ( who am I kidding, everyone on planet earth ) not living under a rock for the last couple of years, you have no doubt heard about all the ups and downs of Britney Spears regarding custody battles, music award show mishaps, and questionable behavior right? Do you ever look at things around you, like the economy, taxes, consumer confidence reports and of course, our real estate market and think "ya know, maybe Britney was on to something by just wigging out"?

It seems like one day, everything seems to be turning a corner. You start getting more calls on your listings, The war in Iraq looks like it is really quieting down violence wise, President Elect Obama makes a cabinet pick you like......ya, things are looking...ok!

Then BOOM, oil prices go up, Russia turns off gas to the Ukraine, Israel and the Gaza situation.....(Is it time to shave my head yet?)

But wait, interest rates are how low???? 4.65 percent!! Our local mortgage lenders are actually having conversations with real people again!! That has got to be good news, people will refinance, or better yet, get off the fence and buy homes again!!....(Maybe that trip to Mexico with Mel Gibson was a good omen)

Lets just say I am not a big fan of Mrs. Spears, before or after her life went from teenage popstar to slightly less than stable Mrs. Kevin Federline and a mother of two. But she seems to have righted the ship and got things back on track, I just hope the ups and downs of the American economy can do the same thing.... and quick. (What, MTV wants her BACK ON the awards show!?!)

Hey Patrick... I'll admit that when I read this in your post, "you have no doubt heard about all the ups and downs of Britney Spears," I literally laughed out loud.  I'm sure you meant nothing lude or sexual, right?   LOL  Nice post!

Tina, I am sorry to hear that! Been there, done it too. Hopefully it is for the best and TMZ will not follow you around!

Brit has done the roller coaster ride- as has our economy. I'm thinkinbg there will still be a deep dip before the ride is both cases.
