Real Estate Is Still Our Sweetheart

Hi Folks,

   Let me start out by saying this: I am done with summer. The heat, the humidity, the sweat, and the drivers. The drivers? Yes, the people driving on the road with their windows open when the temps are 100 or above. Why? To save a negligible amount of money on gas? The problem with driving with your windows open with unbearable Dew Points is that people drive erratically. The humidity and the heat fry their brains, and they are all over the road. It's along the same lines as cell phones while driving, but it's just a different form of distraction (heat exhaustion), and wiping sweat off constantly. My rant is as follows: New laws for Driving While Sweating (DWS) - when temps are above 85 degrees, your windows must be closed. Tickets from the Police, unless you can prove your A/C doesn't work. OK, I had to share that.

   Now, let's discuss our topic; "Real Estate Is Still Our Sweetheart".

   For those of you aware of the website, Zillow.com, you might have heard that they just released an Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the stock market last week. In a story from the Associated Press that was featured on Boston.com, Zillow was described as a company founded in 2004, and "provides online listings for more than 100 million homes that are either for sale or for rent."

   The interesting thing in this story ("Real estate site Zillow jumps on IPO"), is that Zillow "has never made a profit". Adding to the story, it says that "Americans are buying homes at the weakest pace in 14 years".

   However, "Zillow’s shares tripled in their trading debut on the Nasdaq stock market.", the story says, and summarizes the event as follows: "The weak housing market did not hurt Zillow’s initial public offering.", adding that, "Investors set aside housing market doldrums and rushed to grab shares".

   So why is it our sweetheart? I'm not referring to myself, HomeRun Homes, or anyone specifically. I am referring to the collective market. Regardless of what has happened with Real Estate and the underwater mortgages and foreclosures, people are still "Bullish" on Real Estate. Perhaps it is buying on Emotion vs. Fundamentals? Either way, it is good news for Real estate and for our country.

   I know, as for myself, it makes me wonder if HomeRun Homes should go Public one day. For now, let us just focus on doing what we've been doing for the past 9 years.

   What do you think? Was this Real Estate IPO explosion just a wild aberration?
