I WISH TO HELL these economists and spokespeople for the NAR would add the disclaimer (which is their mission statement):
The core purpose of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSÃ® is to help its members become more profitable and successful.
To media report…the representatives of the NAR are NOT unbiased and measured observers of housing econonics! They DO NOT have any inclination to enlighten or educate the general public beyond their stated purpose of furthering the profiteering of their dues paying members!
They are foxes in the henhouse! Blech!
