Seriously, for me, it makes more sense to focus on the buyers and sellers who still are out there, living their lives every single day regardless of whether they can take their kids to the Grand Canyon because the moose out front says it's closed.
Haven't seen any indications that lending's going to freeze because of the shut down; didn't happen when the government shut down in 1995, at least not to my knowledge.
In the mean time---they are playing a game that the multitudes of ignorant sheople dont recognize. They are dilberatley cutting high profile services such as war memorials, certain jobs that cause controversy etc so we will be mad at the horrible Republicans who have caused us this pain. Its smoke and mirrors folks. Notice now everyones attention is drawn to it and we are ingoring petty things like THE ILLEGAL WAR (oil interests) and $10,000 toilet lids. Obama is a horrible piece of work and the worst thing to ever happen to this country. The Republicans are sitting back and taking all this instead of really coming out swinging.
This will have no affect on our industry...if any, just a glitch because it will straighten out. SOme closings may be delayed. No one will care enough to do anything about it though. We are sheep and deserve what we get. STOP PAYING TAXES and clean the current administartion out of the White House. Are you all brave enough to do that? No...Why? Because of our very own GESTAPO---the IRS. How sad we are afraid of our government of, by and for the people.
Best of Luck,
A statistical slow down is enevitable, but will be more influenced by the immenient rush of cash out of the consumers pockets into the hands of banks, home insurance companies, flood insurance companies, health insurance companies, taxes and living expenses. There are REAL storm clouds on the horizon that will dwarf the childishness of the DC dolts.
Do not be deceived for a single second thinking the flood insurance issue is mainly a coastal problem.
It hard for me to wrap my brain around a shut down where everyone still gets paid. That sounds like VACATION to me.
