It’s good to be posting original content to The Real Estate Cafe’s blog again after our second bout of bloggers block.
Like the first time, the slump lasted for nearly 50 days but this time
we had an excuse: we’ve been waiting for enough responses to go public
with our 2006 homebuyer survey. The first graph appears above, and if you
click on the image to enlarge it, the results speak for themselves.
We’ll post more results in coming days, as well as commentary on the
findings and their potential implications for homebuyers and sellers in
Greater Boston. The survey is closed at this point, but you can
comment online or by record a sound bite, for potential use our real estate bubble audio time capsule
(a.k.a. podcast), by calling on our reader line: 617-876-2117.
Event planning: Discuss housing bubble and survey results in person with other homebuyers & sellers
More than 40% of the survey respondents said they
would like a monthly (or bi-weekly) update on the real estate bubble,
and we have already corresponded with several other bloggers in New England — LowellDeeds.com, BostonBubble.com, and MassHouseMarket.blogspot.com — about getting together offline to exchange perspectives with
the public. Would
Thursday night meetings in Cambridge work for everyone? Your feedback is welcome below or by emailing us privately at RECafe@mac.com
