Dead Realtor blog

*** That's [dead] [Realtor blog], not [dead Realtor] [blog]. Get those malevolent thoughts out of your head! ***

Back in 2006, Bubble Meter pointed out that the National Association of Realtors had started their own housing blog. Well, after two years of Realtor spin, it is now dead. I guess people just don't believe NAR's lies anymore.

Sure, many part-time bloggers simply just get tired of doing it. NAR, however, is an organization with paid employees. If one blogger gets tired, just hire another. The only reason I see for them to stop the blog is if it isn't convincing anyone.

NAR tried to lie about the outlook for housing for a long time. They kept trying to convince people that a recovery is right around the corner. The facts of the housing decline have now become so obvious and overwhelming that NAR probably gave up swimming against the current.
