Top 50 Blogs on the Housing Crisis

Published by admin on December 14, 2010

If you are involved with construction management, you know that across the country, the housing crisis slowed things down. Ever since the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis, things have slowed down in the housing sector of the economy. (It is worth noting that some analysts date the start of the housing crisis in late 2006 or sometime in 2007 — well before the financial crisis.) Real estate sales, mortgage applications and construction starts are all down. With credit tight, it is hard for people to get approved for mortgage loans. On top of that, the housing crisis has prompted many to think the advisability of home ownership.

The housing crisis has had far-reaching effects on the economy. Construction is not the only segment affected by the housing market crisis. If you are interested in learning more about the housing crisis, and what is happening in the world of real estate, here are 50 blogs covering the housing crisis:
