Blogger PSA

I just wanted to formally announce and warmly welcome REskeptic as a new contributing (and this blog's first) team member on the Marin Real Estate Bubble blog. He and I have had some extremely insightful and interesting email exchanges in the past and his comments are always on topic and informative and so I look forward to his contributions to this blog. Welcome and thank you.

Just an FYI: I'm not Marinite's alter ego, despite a few unfounded suspicions. We probably share a similar skepticism towards the current real estate scene, but I'll have a somewhat different angle in my posts.

Marinite- pertaining to your post yesterday, I wanted to let you know that God has now spoken on the subject. We linked the post back to you, too.

Getting people to question assumptions isn't a bad "mission" here, let alone many disciplines in life. We can do ourselves a favor by keeping an open mind.

Yes, question assumptions vis-a-vis the housing market in general and in Marin in particular. If we need to have a formal mission statement, then that would probably be it.

"Just curious.. what is the mission of this blog??"

I think this blog should realign the focus from "Marin RE Bubble" to Marin RE. Much more interesting to hear the "natives" views of the current situation as opposed to rehashed data from other locales.

Being a Marinite newbie I find it very interesting reading about the history of MALT, Open Space, BART, and other topics that matter to Marinites.

But POS blog needs to stay.
