[In The Media] Bloomberg TV – On The Economy Housing Starts And Fits

Thursday I was on with Kathleen Hays at Bloomberg News, one of the best business anchors on television, to talk about housing starts. I was joined by Beth Pierce, of the California Association of Realtors (CAR) and owner of her own brokerage and mortgage companies. I thought she provided refreshing candor.

At one point I was asked a question about the change in NYC building codes and how it accounted for the surge in starts which helped skew the national numbers. I experienced a senior moment because my answer pertained to the recent expiration of a long time tax abatement program that had stimulated new development rather than talking about building codes. Sigh.

Here’s more info on the NYC building code [1] change.

On the bright side, I got my first ever tv interview teaser [2] earlier in the day. Gotta love Bloomberg News!
