The Goodkin Report
An Expert Real Estate Consultant's Market Analysis

Lewis M. Goodkin

Years ago, I came up with the notion that when amateurs fail, it is because they miss the subtleties of the market. When the experts fail, it is because they miss the obvious. Back in 2005, it seemed obvious to me that financial speculation rather than demand from end-users was driving the housing boom. But too many economists, developers and builders kept going, acting as if the party would never end.  They kept trying to build a better mousetrap rather than counting the mice!


“You were right on the money with your prediction
about how all the years of easy money, risky,
zero-interest and sub-prime loans in the mortgage
market would eventually catch up to us.”
