Real Estate 360 Live With Louis Cammarosano 2/6/12

On Monday February 6, 2012, Louis Cammarosano, General Manager of HomeGain, was a guest on the Real Estate 360 Live radio show on The Big lowTalker 1580 WHFS AM, hosted by Ryan Sloper.

Listen to the show.

Part 1 (15:37)

Louis and Ryan discuss the Superbowl and the ads that played. Ryan reviews the 10 bond interest rates, the level of the Dow and the situation in Greece. Louis notest that Greece should just default and send a message to the market, rates would go up and governments would have to spend less as they could not afford to borrow money at the higher rates.

Louis notes the irony of a Greek default-it won’t draw attention to the US being in a similar situation, but rather will draw investors to the US as a safe haven. Louis notes that the debt crisis will end up on the US doorstep last and notes that the US won’t default but rather will print up the difference.

Louis notes that printing the difference is inflationary and is in effect a default as the investors will receive less value than they were anticipating. Louis notes that investors have become used to receiving  100% of their funds back from soverigns as they expect a trouble sovereign to be bailed out .

Louis notes that a potential bailout is priced into the risk, thereby reducing the risk and interest rates.  Louis notes that accounting rule encourage banks NOT to do short sales.

Press Call – Q3 2010 Home Prices Survey

Yesterday we held a live 30-minute call and webinar to discuss the results of the HomeGain 3rd Quarter 2010 Home Prices Survey. The call was attended by a few HomeGain folks, including myself, Ken Yee and General Manager Louis Cammarosano; real estate agents who completed the survey; and real estate reporters and bloggers.

Survey results have been referenced in multiple news sites including ReutersBoston Globe, CNBC, Fox Business, AOL Real Estate, UPI, Baltimore Sun, Inman News, RIS Media, and more.

Highlights of the call:

The survey opens up by showing the disconnect between buyers and sellers (question 1). With homeowners continuing to think that their homes are worth more than their agents’ are recommending (more so than last quarter), it also reflects an unchanged disconnect between Realtors and sellers over the last year (question 2 and 3).

The results show that even though agents may be more realistic in current and future home prices (question 6), sellers are still reluctant to list their home according to the agent’s recommendation (question 4).

However, the end result of what the home sells for shows that sellers are having  to bend to a lower selling price in the end in order to get their homes  sold. (question 5) Real estate agent Concetta Pepenella commented:  “Sellers are in all types of situations that are affecting their  decisions. It depends on their motivation and time frame if they are willing to accept an offer for less than they had hoped for. Some sellers are getting out of a difficult mortgage payment because the household income has change due to job loss. Everyone has a different story. In the end they will be selling lower and buying lower.”

HomeGain Radio: Hampton’s Green Alliance

I had the pleasure of speaking with Tim Dalene of Hampton’s Green Alliance in New York the other day. He had an impressive story to share in regards to Green building.

hg_radioHampton’s Green Alliance (HGA) is a non-profit organization, created to be a Green resource for Green building on the east end of Long Island. For this project they brought together a group of local sub-contractors who specialize in difference areas of Green building and came up with innovative ways to create efficiencies within the home.

Their goal? They wanted to create a house where they could answer questions previously unanswered like how much would a Green house cost, what would need to be done, what kind of energy efficiencies could be incorporated — basically what does a Green home mean?

Taking the foundation of an existing home on Long Island that had burned down, this is the story of how the community came together to rebuild it, entirely from recycled and sustainable materials, so the home would be “carbon neutral” and would have “net zero energy”, meaning the homeowners will break even after 8 years, and ultimately not pay for electricity or gas, estimated at a $230,000 savings.
