We’re into year six of the Great Recession years. Money and real estate have never been more entwined, and for some, more frustrating. Homeowners in the housing market have been challenged in historical ways. Investment and the credit crisis have made an impact as well. And as usual, providing personal finance advice, real estate advice and consumer advice on the Ilyce Glink Show September 9, 2012 on WSB Radio.
I am here every week to talk about money and real estate. There was a lot of business news this week. If I can help, that’s what I want to do. But I want to start the show by discussing a related topic.
Here we are in year six of the Great Recession years and so many people’s lives have been smashed to bits. It happened in the blink of an eye: a housing market collapse punctuated by a long-running foreclosure emergency, the evaporation of investment accounts including retirement savings, homeowners and others in a serious credit crisis.
And life still isn’t easy. Three million people who lost their jobs in the last six years still don’t have new ones. Dreadful job numbers were released this week. For many people who listen to this show, there are still so many challenges to face: lost home equity, unemployment and dwindling retirement accounts.
So many people feel like they can’t take one more hit. But the silver lining in these darkest days is that you get to dig deep and fight another day. I have information that can help. We’ll get through this together.
