I was recently approached by Bloomberg View , the editorial arm of Bloomberg LP, to provide commentary on the housing market. I seem to be in good company .
Although their well oiled machine began to append my additional title  “Bloomberg Contributor” earlier in the month when being sourced, it wasn’t an oversight on their part. I didn’t submit my first post until last week. It took me a few weeks to get my groove on as I was in the midst of a 2Q14 market report release gauntlet .
Last Wednesday evening I wrote my first post about Lawrence Yun’s attendance at the Zillow Housing Forum and how NAR had become just one of the crowd, and the symbolism of it all. I got the idea when I was sent the Zillow e-vite to attend the conference and I noticed that Yun was to speak.
Excited, I submitted my first post on Thursday morning, unfortunately just before the Zillow-Trulia bombshell  deal jumped into the headlines. So I needed to add this new twist – which thankfully made my original point even stronger. I re-wrote my first post and it was placed online last Friday.
Here is the first column of hopefully many to come: Homebuying Gets a Housecleaning
