 Real Estate Intelligence Stream

 A Steady Flow of Intelligence Reports on the Residential Property Markets for Real Estate Professionals

Extraordinary Times

Never before has the U.S. real estate markets wielded so much influence over the livelihoods-the income performance-of real estate agents, mortgage lenders, home builders and other real estate-related occupations. It has also wreaked havoc for portfolio managers, real estate analysts and individual real estate investors.

Quite simply, we are in a place we have never been before. Today’s real estate problems of falling home values, mounting foreclosures, excessive inventories, government bailout programs, a mortgage credit crisis, and weary consumers have been unprecedented.

Over the past two years, Reecon Advisors and its President, David Lereah, who was also the former Chief Economist for both the National Association of Realtors and the Mortgage Bankers Association, have helped some of the world’s largest hedge funds, banks and investment companies navigate today’s challenging real estate markets, saving them up to millions of dollars on key decisions. Reecon Advisors has helped individual real estate investors target the right properties in the right locations at the right time. And the company has provided real estate professionals with the necessary intelligence to be on top of their game and better serve their customers in these challenging times.

An Extraordinary Offer

Reecon Advisors is offering, what we believe is a unique product - a stream of intelligence reports on the U.S. residential real estate markets-provided to anyone seeking assistance in today’s difficult marketplace. We are calling this product Real Estate Intelligence Stream, hereafter, Real Estate I-Stream. Rather than expend a great deal of your time and energy on the Internet gathering pertinent information and insight from a long and varied menu of Web sites that may or may not enhance your performance, we are offering you access to a steady flow of real estate intelligence that is designed to meet your needs.

Real Estate I-Stream promises to keep clients uniquely informed about real estate activity and how market developments, events, government policy and new information impact such important measures as home values, home sales, mortgage originations, and new construction activity, as well as the performance of the real estate brokerage, mortgage lending, homebuilding and other real estate-related industries and investment opportunities. The intelligence primarily covers national real estate activity, but also covers regional and metro real estate activity to some extent. Below offers a description of the stream of intelligence provided to clients, mostly through instant electronic communication (e.g., emails).
