This morning, the U.S. Commerce Department announced that housing starts jumped by a whopping 22% in February. That was far more than expected, and the largest percentage gain in 19 years.
Some economists are writing this off as a weather-related fluke which should be dismissed.
But I don’t really care what they think about it. In my experience, economists are no more likely to be accurate than a stock-picking monkey.
However, what I do care about is this: How are you dealing with the economic downturn? Below you’ll find a poll about how the recession has effected you. It’s anonymous, and I’ll be truly grateful if you’ll participate.
HOWEVER… with your permission, I’d like to offer the best help I can by sharing some really creative ways to increase (and sometimes substantially increase) your income during these tough times.
In fact, during the next 3 weeks, I’d like to share 3 different ideas with you that I think are worth your consideration. I personally participate in 2 of them very actively and am in the research phase of the third idea. In the case of the 2 that I am actively involved, I have had very good results – good enough to justify sharing these ideas with you. (Please believe me when I tell you that for me, it is a very high standard to be worthy of sharing with my readers… and the ideas I’ll share with you during the next few weeks are worthy of your interest.)
So this afternoon, I’ll share the first idea with you via e-mail. (If you’re not already on my e-mail list, please join it using the box near the upper right side of this screen.) I GUARANTEE that it’s something you’ve not heard from the real estate gurus. What I’ll share with you today is only peripherally related to real estate, but is such a great strategy that I really think it’s worth your while.
But for now, take just a moment to participate in this survey – and when you’re done, please leave a comment letting us know how you feel about the direction of our economy in light of the hundreds of billions of dollars the government is spending. Thanks!
