Homes Sales Fury, Plus Part 2 of Our Radio Interview

Hi Everyone,

   Let's immediately address the elephant in the room (or the cyber-room, if you prefer) - "Existing home sales drop 27 percent in July" and "Existing home sales dive to 15-year low". Yes, you read these on Yahoo News and all over the Web and on TV yesterday.

   I pose this question to you: We know that the expired homebuyer tax credit is the main culprit for these dreadful numbers. But let's say there was no tax credit in the first place (follow me here - I am not taking political sides)...what would have happened to the housing market? Is it really a guessing game.

   Now, just today, the headline, "New home sales hit slowest pace on record...Unexpected 12.4 percent drop is latest sign recovery fading". Where is all of this headed? Why did we stop the tax credit? We're in a deep enough hole already...at least people were starting to buy homes, build back some confidence, and get back on track. The key is, "confidence", which is psychologically vital to any economic recovery.

   OK, I can rant on and on about this, as well as the demise of "Cash for Clunkers", but the show must go on.

   As promised, I have included part 2 (final part) of the radio interview that we did on the "Unlock Your Wealth Radio Program" (hosted by Heather Wagenhals). As a reminder, this particular segment was about Rent to Own Homes, so please have a listen, and Enjoy !

Have a Great Day, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !

Short Sales, Press, Housing Numbers - A Recap

Hi All,

   Can you believe that it's already Friday? We are headed into our last few weeks of summer, and from whatever corner of the globe that you are reading this, the summer here in the Northeast has been brutal! Time to polish up the snow shovels...yes, it won't be long !

   Today, we just wanted to recap a very eventful week for HomeRun Homes/Lease2Buy, as well as to take a look ahead at next week.

   Over the past week, we have provided you tips and strategies on the Short Sale Process, provided a free widget that shows all current Ads on our website in "Real Time", and we have humbly received some great write-ups in a new American Express Magazine Article, as well as another write-up in AOL's Patch.com.

   We hope that over the past few days, we have given you some great investing tips, a handy new utility for your website, and have brought multitudes of people to our site to either offer you a Rent to Own Home or to Buy your Rent to Own Home ! In the process, I hope we have also made some new friends and helped many others to meet their goals.

   Next week, we have some additional goodies coming along (Stay tuned to this Blog). Further, there are important numbers coming out next week:

   Tuesday 8/24: NAR Existing Home Sales
   Wednesday 8/25: New Residential Sales & FHFA Quarterly House Price Index
   Friday 8/27: Revised Building Permits

   As you can imagine, these are all key numbers that will give us a sense of where we are headed in terms of the housing market and an economic recovery (recovery? lifeline?).

Have a Great Weekend, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !
