In an open letter to President Obama and Governor Romney, RE/MAX co-founder Dave Liniger expressed his disappointment in the candidates lack of discussion of depressed real estate markets across the country. Originally, Liniger had hoped that the election would bring out new ideas and tools for helping homeowners– but after three debates, he has found that neither candidate has brought anything to the table in regards to the housing crisis. The “peril” he sees across the country has gone mostly ignored; how can candidates talk about the economy without talking about the real estate crisis, Liniger asks. Indeed, it is strange that housing has been lost as an issue in 2012 when it remains such a large problem across the country.
