The lead article in the real estate section of The New York Times this weekend attempts to make the case that real estate has gone from Topic No. 1 to Topic Non Grata in the last six months. “Nobody wants to talk about it," The Times quotes one hedge fund manager as saying. We're not so sure that's the case. People may be acting more discreetly when they bring it up, but, in our experience, it's still just as much on everyone's minds as before, although now, instead of being obsesses with how much the value of their house has gone up, it's all about how far the value has fallen. Have you noticed a decrease in the amount people are talking about real estate or just a different tone?
