So a lot of people (see: "Sellers") have been wondering what the *$%! happened to their home equity and this crazy housing market in general, and for many months now I have been repeatedly put to the test of "describing" the status of the current housing market, which to fully explain requires some time travel.  

Well, yesterday in a Keller Williams sales meeting the Universe smiled upon me and gave me the gift I had been looking for....NO, not a week in Hawaii far from the foreclosures, short sales and general cry of pain I hear on a daily basis. Rather, a CARTOON depicting the history of the housing market and what led us to this deep, dark place called a....(shhh, keep this to yourself...)..."Housing Crisis."

**IF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST AT ALL IN THE HOUSING MARKET, THIS IS FOR YOU. IF YOU HAVE LOTS OF INTEREST IN THE HOUSING MARKET, THIS IS REALLY FOR YOU. IF YOU WANT TO LOOK SMARTER THAN ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS, THEN THIS CLIP IS REALLY, REALLY, REALLY FOR YOU.**

So sit back, make sure the Flux Capacitor is calibrated, set the dial to the 'funk' of 1970, and enjoy 7 1/2 minutes of the absolute BEST explanation of this housing mess I've EVER SEEN, courtesy of John Burns, a Real Estate Consultant who spends his days analyzing housing data all over the country.

I WOULD LOVE to get some of your opinions on this clip...please feel free to comment below!
