It’s time, y’all.
Given all of the energy and action of late around housing, housing finance, and future of homeownership by the Federal government, I think it’s time the RE.net (and others!) put together a Carnival of Real Estate Policy.
I’ve organized one and will host the first one here on Notorious. Submission deadline is 8/31/2010 and this inaugural edition will be posted on 9/5/2010.
I’m looking for blogposts that address the intersection of housing, housing finance, and government policy at all levels: Federal, state and local. The posts can be mostly about housing, impact on price or sales, impact on consumers, impact on the industry, etc. but should at least address housing policy questions. They can also be more about the politics — whether such and such a policy is a good idea or a bad one, or whether this policy or that one has a chance of success, or wider political implications, whatever.
This is the first edition; if there is enough energy around the topic, I’ll look to make this a regular monthly carnival, hopefully with other blogs hosting it as we go forward.
How to Submit
First, write a blogpost and schedule it for publication around 9/5. Then email me the post and the permalink to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll read it to make sure the post is on-point, then include it in the actual Carnival Edition post. Readers will be sent to your blog to read the actual post.
Let’s get the conversation going on this all-important topic. Looking forward to your thoughts.
