Thanks to everyone, Raid especially, for advice or good wishes. I'm starting in the marketing area of loan officering (not a word) working up the internet end of turning leads into prospects into loan closings.
The companies got seven offices in East Carolina (Raleigh, Wilmington) and in between and I am excited as all get out.
Thanks to GK for making me check my bucket for holes as there is no better way to get an Irishman to work than to tell him he can't do something (pretty much explains the first 25 years of the New England Patriots).
Don't know **** now, but i will, so if Davekn or anyone wants to know what i can glean from the current state of the industry, bump this baby in a few months, it has mortgage in the title.
For a general statement, look to the Calculated Risk blog creator. He was regarded as the first of the lay man's statistical blogs, especially in housing (where he was waving the red flag early).
He said this week, he expects a doubling in housing starts just by analyzing a normal distribution based on demographics, lack of building etc. No time frame, but in the foreseeable future.
Thanks folks, now go out and buy a farking house!
