Lawrence Yun Resigns from the National Association of Realtors

Wow! The day has finally arrived. Lawrence Yun is leaving the National Association of Realtors.

Washington (AP) - Lawrence Yun, the chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, announced to day that he plans on leaving the Realtors' association in late May in order to spend more time with his family. Lawrence Yun has worked there for five years. Last year Mr. Yun was promoted to chief economist after David Lereah left. Mr. Yun was a widely quoted expert in the real estate industry.

Dale Stinton, the CEO of the Realtors' association stated that "Mr. Yun has served us well, we will miss him." Others in the real estate industry noted his year of experience as a respected real estate expert.

However, Lawrence Yun has his critics, including David Jackson Jackson who runs the Lawrence Yun Watch. Mr. He said "Lawrence Yun was a paid spinner who has been discredited for his outlandish predictions."

Happy April Fools Day!


  1. Happy April Fool's!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Great April Fool's Day Joke on us bubbleheads!!!

  3. How about a "Lance Watch" blog?

    One where we can see if Lance ever agrees that there was a housing bubble that is now deflating. Greenspan agrees. Bernanke agrees. Paulson agrees. CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, and Fox networks agree. But I don't recall Lance agreeing, saying this is a typical correction, not one of unusual proportions.

  4. Well, you got me on that one. When I read the quote about you, I thought, "man, that's interesting that the AP would mention The Watch."

  5. David,

    That was good!


  6. This blog has gone to crap.

    Look at the last week of updates.

    A joke, two bubblesphere roundups, and "open questions."(That will never be answered because of the lame moderation)

  7. That is really awsome news but you are not celebrating April fool, right?

    Sell your house fast

  8. "Spend more time with my family"

    hahaha that's what pro sports coaches say when they are pushed out of the door.
