I'm just curious as to whether most agents think Trump will be good for realtors and the industry or bad. I'm guessing good.

Trump will guarantee a minimum of $100 per BPO; but Hillary would have raised the Fee to a princely $150 !

Another set of campaign promises now fallen by the wayside.

Good thing there's a fall back position in relying on Commissions.

Only time will tell.

If we as a nation can't come together as one then it really won't matter.

I'd say as long as government and regulations (not that I am a fan of regulations) allow lenders to offer no doc/no income mortgages or 1st/2nd mortgages with no buyer money in it, I don't see why the real estate market wouldn't continue on its typical journey of highs/lows. I'm not a fan of it myself; but, there are so many fools out there or those who believe 'someone' will take care of them, I certainly don't see the real estate market being affected in the future. What I would like is less bankruptcy/less foreclosure only for a person to be able to wait a year or two and get into trouble all over again and run the cycle again. I'm a firm believer in responsibility. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

I am a Trumpster.

From a foreign client perspective, it should be good.

It seems that buyers in Asia do believe that it is a great time to invest in US real estate now. This is a good article describing the greater interest:

Survey results of Chinese about President Trump: are you more likely to buy U.S. homes/real estate now?
53%: Yes
16%: No

It will likely vary by geographical location. What concerns me in TX is that our market has been very strong. Prior to the election I had not heard much about NAFTA, good or bad. Recently it has been reported that TX probably benefited the most from it and that we stand to get hurt pretty badly if NAFTA gets repealed.

nafta is easy to hate until you look at the specifics, then the benifits become obvious. A lot of americans are going to lose their jobs when nafta goes away.

The biggest loss of factory jobs has come from robots, i guess they are the next boogy man for us to be afraid of.

That is so true. People are longing for the "good old days" of plentiful manufacturing jobs, that required no experience or education, and these jobs aren't coming back.

But you cannot deny a good number of those laborous jobs are still in China and other countries. I had gone to Kohl's department store awhile back. Ken was trying on some jeans (brand name but probably not made here anymore). Of the racks of men's clothes around me, I did not have to move even two feet and I had visited 10 different countries. The qualify of the fabrics used are dreadful, nearly see-through cloth. So, then, the next day, as everything I used (or ate) was picked up, I looked at the country of origin. BARELY, anything was made in the U.S.A. After 15 items, I gave up looking as it was disgusting. Please, tell me, how are we benefiting and where are we, as a country, benefiting?

11.5 million americans go to work everyday to make products that are exported overseas. If we shut down imports from other countries then they shut down imports from us and those 11.5 million workers no longer have jobs.

we could put those 11m people to work making products for us but are you willing to pay double for everything? You can buy all your clothes right now from american manufacturers but not in the department stores because they are too expensive for the average consumer so stores generally dont carry them.

Plus nafta has nothing to do with china.

I just read an article from the Dallas paper that says NAFTA is responsible for ten times as many jobs in Texas as the oil industry---was---responsible for. The oil bust hit us pretty hard. Who knows if the writer knows what he is talking about?---probably not. But if he is just partially correct it could be a lot of jobs.

I have high hopes that Trump will erase all of the EPA regs that were put in place. If that happens it will be drill drill drill--again.

Our coal industry was devastated as well. Some of the mines are completely shut down.

I would love to see Trump completely close down the EPA---I mean scuttle the agency completely. And while he is at it---ban Ethanol!!!!!

A client of mine owns coal mines in apalachia, he says the demise of coal is the cheap natural gas from fracking. The power companies have all switched over to cheaper gas.

cheap oil from fracking has also shut down oil wells with the glut of cheap oil. The glut of oil was created (with the help of opec) to put pressure on russia. Their main export is oil and their economy took a dive as punishment for invading ukraine. Now that we are buddies with russia the price of oil will go back up.

the keystone pipeline is canadian owned and will be built by canadians and it will carry canadian oil to boats waiting in our ports to take it overseas. All we will get out of it is the bill for cleaning it up.

the epa has been blamed for all of this as part of a coordinated campaign (by big business) to get rid of it. The epa was created when the chicago river caught fire for the second time. Everyone against the epa will change their minds when reality kicks in, unfotunately, it will be a horrible mess when that
time comes.

I realize that the EPA does have a purpose. Nobody wants toxic waste dumped into rivers.

What I am vehemently against is any protection of a reptile, animal, etc. at the expense of energy production. We are losing lives in the middle east over oil. I am all for energy independence in the U.S. if it can ever be achieved.

Then there is Ethanol. It is a proven fact that Ethanol is a financial net loss. It takes a ridiculous amount of water to produce it. It is crazy to be burning our food in a gas tank!!

The us exports 3,600,000 barrels of crude oil every month. This does not take into account the amount of gas and petroleum products that are exported. energy independence is not the goal of the oil companies so it is not going to happen even if the epa goes away. Blaming a reptile makes for a better sound bite than the blaming the oil companies.

war is not going to go away as long as the people behind it can walk away with billions in profit. Take the profit out of war and it will stop. The next one is in the planning stages right now and will be available for 24 hour viewing shortly. Our new president has an unprecidented 3 generals in top whitehouse positions and he has said "I love war".

Let's fact check this one. The media has had a lot of fun during the election.

I not sure what part of my quote you are fact checking but if it is the i like war part, i saw the words come out of his mouth. There is no context where those words are appropriate for anyone to say.

one thing is for sure with oil and gas prices. They go up and down and in a cyclical fashion and it's not necessarily dependent on who is in office

Not everyone is excited about the new Trump administration, but the National Association of Home Builders' Housing Market Index shows homebuilders like KB Home (KBH) and Pulte Group (PHM) are bullish — and real estate marketplace provider Zillow (Z) stands to benefit if that enthusiasm proves to be well-founded.

He is removing ALL deductions with the exception of the mortgage deduction. That means any local mortgage taxes, and a slew of others, would not be deductible from your federal returns as they are now.

This is going to screw our industry. It will no longer be affordable for most people to buy rather than rent property. Local governments have been using home owners as their piggy banks for all sorts of special projects. When working class families do the math, i suspect our volume will go waaaaaay down.

And now with Canada's bubble popping, watch for more chaos...

Why should a President make real estate great again? I'm a HUGE Trump fan; but, the real estate industry needs to settle down to where folks who actually can afford to put decent down payments on a house, have a GOOD rainy day fund for new roof, new HVAC, all the problems owning a home can have. Have we all forgotten when real estate is really GREAT, there's always going to be a downside to it eventually? Must we go through the same vicious cycle again and again? Not everyone can actually AFFORD to own a home. The market gets flooded with buyers with loose financing requirements, prices rise ridiculously high and the bottom falls out again. It's certainly not that sorryful, not defunct homeonwer who thinks it's great. All things in due time. People need to make their own sacrifices but none want to. And, if they actually think a liberal, socialist or democrat is going to GIVE them all the things they want, they will be sorely disappointed. It's suspect that if there is an American revolution, it will be that group of people who revolt because the liberal, socialist or democrat president did NOT give them what they were promised. I don't expect President Trump to be able to fulfill all his promises but he is certainly trying. But, when the opposition fights him at every little thing without real justification except to block his every attempt, he can not be blamed. I'd like to side the 'other' side reach across the aisles in Congress for once to actually help get things done and get things back in order to making America great again. But, if Republicans are then successful, well, there'd be no reason to vote for a liberal, socialist or Democrat.

I'd be HAPPY if I find American made clothing (which I barely do) and I'd be HAPPY to pay for a better quality material and better craftsmanship. All that's out there, even under some well-known brands, are junk clothing to be tossed out after several wearings. I have always been for QUALITY not quantity. You will barely find a NEW piece of furniture in my home because it's all vintage, not all antique at this point yet, but, they don't make furniture like they used to - with SOLID wood.

Headed for a drink.

None of you have gone back far enough to pinpoint what has really trashed our economy, and our manufacturing segment, and our housing market.
... and if we changed laws nationwide, and there was no opposition to do so, it would still take 30 years+ to "fix" the economy, to include the housing market.

That problem? Legalizing abortion. As a nation, we've killed off a large number of people since 1974 who would be educated, available to work, pay taxes, buy goods & services, buy houses, etc.

And I'll stop right there. Just think about it - no religion or moral issues added in here, just look at it from an economic standpoint. wink

I have no desire to turn this into a political debate, nor a pro vs. anti abortion issue. So, I'll just keep this post about the numbers.

Perhaps I am misinterpreting your point. But, by stating "As a nation, we've killed off a large number of people since 1974 who would be educated, available to work, pay taxes, buy goods & services, buy houses, etc.", it sounds like you are saying there aren't enough people in this country, available to participate in each of your points of concern (education, work, taxes, commerce, etc). If my interpretation is correct, this is not the case.

This web site -- US Population by Year -- has the US population at 213.85 Million in 1974 and 325.15 Million in 2017. If this web site is correct, that's an increase in population of more than 110 Million people since 1974

Also, the US census web site -- Population Clock -- is estimating the US population is increasing by 1 person every 12 seconds.

So, if you are correct, and the problem truly is the lack of people working, paying taxes, buying goods & services, buying houses, etc., it's not due to a diminished population. There are plenty of people available to overcome those concerns. So, adding to the population is not going to fix the economic problem. A quicker solution might be to find a way to get more people motivated to take an active role with each of your points of concern (working, paying taxes, buying goods & services, buying houses, etc.).

Please do not think that I am pro-abortion. That is not the case. I just fail to see a direct connection between legalized abortion and the economic concerns. It appears there are enough people to fill the void that you pointed out.

I wasn't trying to make this a political or religious debate either. smile

If you're right, you've hit on something -- I've heard the argument made that supports what I said, but heh, I'm happy to go with your point of view. If there are enough people, we need to get them producing something that adds to our country's well-being and bottom line.

I really don't believe any one human is going to come in here, in any position, and cure the ills of our country's economy, to include the weak housing market. We need something bigger.

I think we already have too many people.

The complaint is that we have too few jobs . . . . but the fact is that we have too many people for the few jobs that are available.

Automating more of the low skill/no skill jobs will worsen the situation. People need to receive a paycheck for merely existing.

Income re-distribution is a good answer until we run out of other people's money.

Call me an optimist; but I think we're just circling the drain . . . . probably beyond help.

Meanwhile, can anyone write a "good ending" for the Korean Situation . . . . take 48 hours and see if you can arrive at a nice conclusion.

I expect China to settle down the crazy dictator kid in N. Korea. It's not worth the time & manpower to support his nuclear holocaust. They can make more money in trade with us, plus have more & better stuff that they import from us.

That's the nicest scenario I can write. wink

The only good ending for Korea would be for its dissolvement. I certainly don't want the U.S. to be the one to do that unless other countries join in; but, I don't doubt China has a large interest in Korea (not just economically) as Korea has alot of people and land that would enlarge China's power in the world. It is a shame in those types of countries that the leaders cut off their people from the outside world so they don't really have any grasp what is actually going on inside their country and in the world.

Also, American jobs. President Trump has authorized 15,000 HB1 visas because employers say they cannot find Americans to do seasonal work. Since liberals/Democrats keep pushing their agenda that everyone (meaning those who don't participate in the labor force) should have what hardworkers earned, people now think they deserve these items for doing nothing. High school and college students used to do seasonal work, but, try to find a neighborhood kid who will come cut your grass once a week - even if you supply the gas and the mower - good luck with that! Society has created lazy Americans who think they deserve it all. Those who come from other countries and are in the lower income bracket, they send their money back to their home country. That does not benefit the U.S.A. We need to cut back on public assistance, enforce criminal laws/punishment on those who prefer to rob and steal (and get rid of the hotel-like prisons (some actually want to go to prison for the roof over their head, 3 meals a day and free medical), and force the lazy ones to work or cease to exist. I don't know WHY people think if we have socialism that they will be given everything the Democrats promise. It isn't going to work like that at all. The only way to keep people under control is to actually control them. Americans are permitted to seek their own happiness but there's nothing that says other Americans must supply their happiness.

well, this is just nonsense. There are a lot of seasonal workers where i live and it is not because americans won't do the job. Employers hire hb visa workers because they don`t have to pay overtime, no taxes, no worker rules, they jam an incredible number of people into company housing and charge outragous rent, and at the end of the season they stop paying them because the foreigners have no leverage to file complaints.

greed is why so many seasonal workers are foreign.

It's been a couple months and I've talked to a few hundred people . . . . and NO ONE has been able to construct a good ending to this story; they all end BAD, VERY VERY BAD !

Actually, most people simply don't want to even think about what's at stake here.

Vermont -- the only good ending I can imagine is if North Korea is somehow persuaded to not start a nuclear attack. I doubt they will launch an invasion of the south using conventional forces. There is no good door, in my mind, if the US initiates an invasion or nuclear attack.
