We want to tell some post-crash real-estate success stories. Need some help.
Have you noticed that the real-estate crash is almost always written about as a bad thing? House prices have been falling for the past five or six years, and everyone acts like it's a calamity. People wouldn't freak out so much if the prices of cars or appliances fell dramatically.
Falling house prices have produced winners. First-time buyers have bought repossessed homes cheap, and have bought condos at great prices. And they've done this at a time when mortgage rates are attractively low.
We want to tell a few of these stories in an article that will run in early July. If you benefited from the housing crash, and would like to be interviewed about it for a story, let me know. Email me the basics of your happy story and how a reporter can contact you to schedule a phone interview.
If we do a story about you, we'll publish your real name and city. No anonymity, no pseudonyms. I know that's a deal-breaker for some people, and if it is for you, no need to send an email. And if we do a story about you, we would love it if you would supply a photo of you and your smiling face with your lovely abode in the background.
