Donna Yates, Move 2 North Georgia.net: Why Won’t The Media Report The Good News?!

Why Won’t The Media Report The Good News?!

Not only the news channels but even run of the mill TV shows are mostly negative.  And don't get me started with commercials.  We are bombarded 24/7.  I say turn off the TV and get outside and live life to the fullest.  There's too much beauty and goodness to be had and time is too precious to waste on so much negative programming.  In my most humble opinion...

This is something that has always bothered me. Have you ever noticed that no matter what news channel you turn on it’s always negative stuff? I can’t remember the last time I saw a news story about Habitat For Humanity helping a family in need. I sure haven’t seen any news stories about the Toys for Tots program that will give out thousands of toys this year. Why is that?

Poinciana, FL Home Values Are Up

On to the focus of this post...why won’t the media report on the real estate recovery as passionately as they did about the recession? I believe the media as a whole damaged our country. They reported on everything negative there was to find that could raise their ratings and they piled on needlessly. Now the housing market is recovering and you don’t hear a peep. I think they owe it to the American public to help undue some of the damage they caused.

Poinciana, FL was one of the worst hit communities in America with thousands of foreclosures and market values falling almost 70% between 2006-2010. Over the last year home values have been stable and over the last 3 months home values have even begun to rise. But you wouldn’t know that if you left it up to the media to tell you.

So how about it media types? Do you have the balls to start reporting the truth for a change? We’d all love to hear what’s REALLY going on in the world for once....Here’s what we want...the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!

I love it! The media is always so negative about everything, especially real estate trends. Our market doesn't have rising prices (yet), but we are swamped with buyers to the point we have multiple offers on most sales, in most price ranges...and that's an indicator that prices will go up...

Kristen: Now, that's very good news!  Our building permits for new construction jumped way up in November compared to October and December is looking really good too.

Broker Branyt is Right The Press is also the Cause. I turn off anything negative on TV and I canceled our Local Newspaper two years ago...They called and asked me back, I said "are you going t stop printing negative News? They said "no" so i said "no" too.

Our Real Estate market is seeing postive activity with Sales and even some competing offers.
