Real Estate (Finance) information clearing house of information

I've been meaning to post a bit about what is going on in the real estate finance world these days, but really, things are moving so fast that anything I would post here would be outdated in a matter of only a few days...

1. However, one of the places I DO look for information would be good for you too. Although you should view it with a grain of salt - it's pretty doom and gloom. The Housing Bubble Blog is a macro engine for gathering nation-wide news reports on all things real estate. It's been around for a while, and therefore you can search on a city name, like PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FLORIDA and get a listing of local news reports that are all compiled in one place. They don't post any positive news though. For example, everyone around here knows that our local real estate market has been moving ahead with fervor, for all the right reasons, but that's not stuff they are listing. It's all about the bubble phenomenon...

2. I noticed over at the Blue Roof (as opposed to the Red Door) that CNNMoney has come out with a couple of interesting lists:

First is a listing of the top ten houses in the USA... four of them are Frank Lloyd Wright houses.

Next is a listing of the top 150 architectural landmarks in the USA. Salt Lake makes the list at #69, but not for what you'd think...

And by the way, if you have an interest in real estate at all, whether an ongoing general interest, or an immediate interest because of a personal transaction you are involved in, you should be reading this blog, and using the Blue Roof site. Greg knows his stuff, and if you're looking for a good real estate experience, he'll take care of you.

3. A general article about Real Estate Agents that I found particularly interesting, and another from MarketWatch that was posted today, about the subprime lending crisis, also very interesting... It makes me realize I'm glad that I pretty much throw all the cards on the table and tell people how I get paid, and by whom, when I do a loan for them...

Just sayin'.

Thanks for the shout out- and for keeping up such an interesting blog.

It can be a lot of work, but it's fun for the rest of us to read.

Greg beat OneHung it, he was going to say exactly the same thing about the shout out.
