Real Estate Radio: The Home and Wealth Show

by Alex Stenback on January 5, 2006

Mic_2Last week, we teased a new real estate radio show.  The post was meant as a blind tease, but a few of you saw right through the subterfuge (despite our pumping some "non-denial denial" chaff into the comment stream) and guessed that we might have a bit more involvement than that of a detached observer.  We can now come clean, dear readers, and announce some exciting news:

The new show, which will be called the Home and Wealth Show, will feature Behind the Mortgage on an ongoing basis, with a weekly segment of 10 minutes or so where we’ll dig into some of the local topics we’ve covered here each week.

Aside from your favorite real estate blogger’s involvement, the show concept will be real estate, money and wealth management – here’s a snippet from the press packet:

100.3FM KTLK’s brand new money show is all about news, clues and views you can actually use…to be smarter with your money, shop wiser, be financially savvier. Understand how national and local financial events impact your own wallet…in ways that might surprise you. And hear the inside scoop from the people who know the local and national real estate and finance scene. All the things you wanted to know about your money, your mortgage, your home…but were afraid to ask. Fear no more, we’ve got answers…and a little kick of fun. Don’t miss the all-new HOME AND WEALTH SHOW, featuring Al Velasco and Sue Woodard of CTX Mortgage, and local real estate blogger Behind the Mortgage’s Alex Stenback.

The show will air Sunday mornings (inaugural show this Sunday) from 10-12:00 Noon on 100.3FM, formerly Smooth Jazz, now NewsTalk. Our intent is to make the show fully available via podcast and to have a Wealth and Home show website/blog where we can support the on air topics with an online presence, though we are still hammering out some details, so the full menu of content may not be up and running for Sunday.  Check back, we’ll update you as this unfolds…

Nice, but is anyone actually up that early on Sundays? :p

Very cool. Congrats on the Inman mention and I look forward to the audio.

I am looking to broadcast shortly myself.

Did anyone catch the ctx e-mail address they just announced before the break??

Credit scoring models versus length of time between inquiries . . . . .

When Edward mentioned that the length of time between inquiries (before the inquiry would impact a person’s credit score) depended upon the credit scoring models being used, was he referring to the credit scoring models used by FNMA & FHLMC? Or was he referring back to the particular credit scoring models he had mentioned that car dealers use?? This would have been when they were discussing a window of 45 days up to eight weeks. I’m asking because I understood that window (for the credit scoring models used by FNMA & FHLMC) to be closer to 10 days.
