Bubble Meter, one of the leading bubble blogs, points out that there have been a number of housing bubble blogs that have crashed lately.
Here’s a few more that seemed to have lost interest as their sites have not been updated recently or the frequency has dropped off.
- New York Housing Bubble
- Another [email protected] Borrower – casualty of the housing bubble
- Flip This
Since the build up and anticipation of a housing slow down has come and gone, the fight may have left many of these bloggers. Then again, the attrition rate of blogs of all types is fairly high and the loss of some or most of these sites is likely part of the normal ebb and flow of the blogosphere.
I have yet to see a proliferation of soft landing blogs to take their place.
Perhaps it is amazing that people continue to devote so much time and energy to something without being paid. You have to be motivated to do that. Lots of bubble bloggers were motivated by the idea that housing prices were getting out of line, the sheep where being sheared, and the mainstream press was not reporting it.
Not a problem anymore.
The best piece I read on any blog was a compilation of New York Times story summaries from the previous bubble/bust in the 1980s and early 1990s. “Those who do not remember history…”
We are alive and well and living in NY City…
Come view our Housing Bubble Movie!
Just wait til next year…Bitches.
thehousingbubbleblog.com now rules the net- most of the other guys contribute. Natural consolidation. This market is blowing, but most downtrends take 3-4 years to bottom out. Owners have no desire to sell at a $200k loss when they can carry for $3k/mo. This is a type of call option. Problem will be when gov brings us back to normal credit standards and interest rates.
NYC permits are dropping like a rock. Reduced supply is too late- too much in the pipeline.

Thanks so much! 🙂

I believe the person who writes “Another [email protected] Borrower – casualty of the housing bubble” left his job in the mortgage business for greener pastures. If a person writing a blog like that doesn’t see the writing on the wall, who will?
I will be posting more again on my blog Another [email protected] Borrower.
Blogging takes a lot of time, but I really enjoy it. I gave my 2 weeks notice as driving 700-1000 miles per week got old very fast.
I am working on a few other things to keep the blog on the front of peoples minds and keep it as a resource for everybody.
