1.8% is in the bag

Gotta love a group that makes Nigel Swaby look like prophet. Yes, such an organization exists; the California Association of Realtors. In a press release the CAR predicts "a 14 percent decline in single-family home sales this year, and forecast a 1.8 percent increase in the median price of a home. "

CAR analyst Michel de Nostredame was unavailable for comment.

Ah! Of course! I thought about one of today’s other replies… where someone asked what you might have in the book that you haven’t already blogged about… and the light went on. How could I have been so foolish?

You aren’t answering questions or providing any interesting new material because of the book! That’s it, right? You’re contractually obligated to not blog about anything new or to answer key questions from now on. Even as you’re also obligated to keep the blog going.

Wow. What a drag that must be.

Snowflake...

- Has to keep blogging because of some nebulous book deal.

- Has nothing to blog about.

- Cannot blog about the book.

- Cannot get out of the contract (we know how that goes, don't we, PRLinkBiz).

- Blogging violates the contract with the wife.

- Cannot blog about how angry the wife is.

Yeah, great. That site is toast.

1000 a week,

You forgot:

- Ban all the people whose comments made reading your blog worthwhile, and who comprised about 80% of your readers.

As of this morning I'm convinced that I'm banned myself. I've made a couple of very innocuous posts, nothing mentioning the unmentionable, nothing "disrespectful," just some simple posts.

All disappeared.

I wonder who he thinks is still reading?

Casey, how about a response to LossMitPro? You need to do some damage control. These latest revelations are really making you look like an ass with no intention of ever repaying a dime to your creditors. You had a workable repayment plan set up for you, and you blew it off. You've reneged on the contract you signed with your wife in favor of a contract that you signed with a publisher that is unlikely to ever net you much income at all. You would make more money off selling the domain than you will from the book deal. Please explain, because IAFF is quickly becoming irrelevant to your story.

Hey guys, cheer up...Nigel says we are in a Goldilocks Economy.

Nigel, that is one of the dumbest things I have ever read in my life.

No, I was misquoted, I meant to say we are in a Rapunzel economy.

I beg to differ oh he of the Axe and pleather.

I'd say we are in a Sleeping Beauty economy, and it's gonna be a rude awakening.

Sac RE Agent said...

Hey that's great Rob. Just read where the NAR said to expect a 1.4% drop in median prices across the country. So an increase in median prices for California is Sweeeeeettt!!!

FMW said...

@ H&MV,
Well done!
complex and entertaining.

Rob Dawg said...

SacRE,

Even better, California is like 20% of the national number so US medians (ex-CA) are more like -2.0%. I have to confess my neighborhood is still clinging to the high prices at the lower sales rate.

HM&V,
Well done. Well done indeed.

and that is not including the cost of either real of hypothetical inflation...

I would say more of a "gnaw your own arm off" economy.

@ H&MV, that was great!

Sac RE Agent said...

Glad that Ventura County is staying steady. Just sold one house in Sac as I lost a good chunk of equity on it in the past year. Would have liked to sell sooner but family circumstances kept us there a little longer.

Thinking about putting some of that 'hard earned' equity into SLC real estate. I've heard it's doing sweet!

So let's see if I have the events correct here:

- He cannot blog about new information since that violates the conditions of the book contract

- He isn't supposed to blog at all since that violates the contract with his wife (and family)

- Any potential proceeds from said book (including potential ownership) violates the contract with the No Limit Ladies

Three contracts. All violating each other. Ain't that a peach.

Casey, if you read this (and I know you read this blog), please take heart the following:

You are an idiotic. You are a complete and utter moronic jackass. If your life had been an episode of Star Trek, you'd be wearing a red shirt and would have been killed by now.

Honestly Snowflake, you are a total loss. In every sense of the word. Reading your dribble for the past 9 months did shed some light on one curious aspect of the animal kingdom: now I know why tigers eat their young.

Sheesh.
