Have you been waiting for the recent exuberance about the “housing recovery” to subside? Looks like the national housing market has reached a tipping point:

What’s happening in Massachusetts and the local housing market where you’re house hunting? How can you translate the annual seasonal slowdown into a major price concession during the off-season, which begins about a month from now?
We’ll be looking for answers to those questions as we attend conventions hosted by the Mass. Association of Realtors and New England Mortgage Brokers this week. To fund our attendance and related expenses, we’re asking readers to share costs via our crowdfunding campaign on Crowdtilt. Anyone — existing client or not — contributing $50 will be given one hour of consulting time, normally billed at $75 to $150 per hour plus attendance at a webinar to learn more about convention highlights. If you donate $100 or more, we’ll meet one-on-one offline to dig deeper into seasonal price trends in your market.
It’s not official yet (and we can’t guarantee we’ll get in), but we
hope to hear Chip Case & Robert Shiller, cofounders of the famed
Case-Shiller Housing Index speak tomorrow morning in Newport, RI:
Economic Housing Update – the Home Price Bubble…Where are we Now?
If you’d like to benefit from the latest insights from housing pundits at
real estate and mortgage conventions this week in New England, please contribute to The Real Estate Cafe’s crowdfunding campaign and share with friends.
