The real estate market here is not CRASHING. Real estate sales have slowed down (here, as elsewhere) for many reasons.

1. those subprime and Alt-A loans are no longer being given out like candy.
2. people from the NE can't sell their homes and cash out and come to CLT and buy a new house as they have been doing for the past five years.
3. people who don't HAVE to sell are just testing the water (by listing their homes) to see if some fool will come buy their house at an inflated price (thus, long days on market)
4. foreclosures are going on all over the nation; Charlotte is not immune
5. qualified buyers are reading posts like this one and getting the bejeebers scared out of them, b/c they are so worried housing prices will fall yet more, wh/ probably will happen, if everyone keeps hesitating and inventory stays high
6. Interest rates are going to go up, so even if qualified buyers wait for prices to drop, it is still gonna cost just the same to finance the purchase of a home - and some people have figured that out - and some WILL figure it out in the next few months (and thus, buy a home here)
7. Buyers who have the ca$h and can get a loan are still in the absurd mindset that they don't want an inventory house - and there are builders out there perpetuating the problem by continuing to build

So why are we still debating what is going on? It is clear what is going on. It is no mystery and Charlotte's situation is no worse - and indeed, may be better - than that of many other areas of the nation.

Good luck with that.

Thanks for the offer BTW

John

It's funny that you say you have no time when you obviously spend many, many hours on this site alone. Between reading things to comment on and writing your posts, you have tons of time! Looking at your profile, you didn't start to comment regularly until when, Dec of 07 and in that 14 month time you've done way over 1,200 posts? WOW! 1,200 posts in just 14 months? I'd say you have toooo much time!
So you're interested in adding caki to this thread also I see. Must have one of those fetishes that I am not aware of. Since you have the time to be clocking me let me give you a few other details that might be part of your fantasy: I use purple colored condoms. I generally only wear women's undergarments on MLK Day. I move my bowels regularily especially when I read posts such as the one you just posted.

What else would you like to know? BTW There will be a small charge you will need to pay for your internet voyeurism as I'm not here to amuse you for free.

You've summed it up nicely - end of story as far as I'm concerned. I won't be posting here anymore.
Thanks, Loves. And I agree - no reason to keep posting here.

John,
Why is it that anytime someone calls you on something and you can't make them go away by insulting them, you bring up caki , a sexual
fantasy, or her panties? Or, in this case all of the above! Oh yeah, It's your sense of humor and we just don't get it!! Like your the only one on this forum who has one.
You really should stop this. Your not that funny. JMHO

Glad it's just your opinion. Got it.Now as far as "you really should stop this" well I think you are too young to be my Mama. And as far as 'I'm not funny" I TOTALLY agree with you.

Close the thread?

Why on earth would you want to do that? This thread is really just getting started.

Of all the indications that I have ever found in life that I am providing information that is accurate and worrisome to some folks, the "shut him up quick" indication is the one that I find to be the surest.

If there was no story here - if there was no truth in what I posted - if, in fact, a substantial number of posters in this thread were not primarily concerned with how a slowing housing market affects their bottom line -

then why on earth would there be 12 pages of responses?
Why would people call me retarded? And ignorant?
Why would somebody be posting in all bold? Calling for the thread to be locked and censored to completely shut off debate?

Hmm?

To all you young folks out there who may be thinking about buying, think about those questions.

Think about this one as well:

In addition to being called a retard and ignorant, I've also now been accused by at least 3 people of "having an agenda."

Ok.

What is it?

I haven't even read one suggestion.

What "agenda" could I possibly have?

Excellent post. Now where do we go from here? Remember you opened the thread. You made a statement that quite a few people disagree with. Several people (me included) asked for your agenda in this since it was a neg. for home ownership and value.

For starters I have no interest in your agenda any longer as I have formed my own thoughts on your M.O. I believe Loves asked to put a lid on it because she was bored with it and you. Of course she has no auth. to close it she can only suggest.

So, in summary, I'll ask you, where do we go from here? Example:if noone posted any further to this thread what would you think? What action would you take? Share with us what you would like to do with this thread YOU started

We may attack ideas (politely) but we do not attack the speaker of the idea. Be careful with your words, there is a point where being direct crosses a line into blunt, in-your-face hostility. Please, report bad posts instead of engaging in flame wars on the boards. Insulting another member or a moderator will not be tolerated anywhere on this website.
