Friday Linklube: Things We Should Have Blogged Edition

by Alex Stenback on August 12, 2005

Sometimes, the week just vanishes, and good topics go un-blogged.  Because we’re feeling guilty, here’s a quick link dump of some notable items we just didn’t get to:

Fed Raises Interest Rates .25% [FOMC]: Surprising not a single person, and had little impact on mortgage rates.
Real Estate Begins (finally) to Cool [Big Picture]: Rising inventories, market time, and rates suggest a slowing market.
Contrarian Investing Is Hard, if Profitable [Infectious Greed]: "…being too far ahead of your time is indistinguishable from being wrong.”
Housing Prices High For Low Income Workers [yahoo]: Wages not keeping up with housing prices for some essential workers.
Manufactured Homes Newfound Respect [usatoday]:  In related news, MTV’s "Trailer Fabulous" debuted this week.
Mr. Real Estate Bubble Accessories [t-shirt humor]: In Stores Now!
Behind the Mortgage Featured in IBD [investors.com]: In case you missed the Investors Business Daily Piece on Real Estate Blogs.

There, that feels much better.  Curb Appeal Enthusiasm will be up a little later…

Congrats on being featured on investors.com. I see that you were interviewed for a feature on startribune.com (http://www.startribune.com/stories/417/5554324.html). Congrats!

Thanks Scott – last week was definitely a good week for Behind the Mortgage, at least as far as “press” is concerned.
