[The Housing Helix Podcast] Michael Falsetta, EVP, Miller Cicero, Brooklyn New Development Valuation

June 18, 2009 | 11:18 pm | Podcasts |


I spoke at length with Michael Falsetta, EVP of our commercial real estate valuation firm Miller Cicero, a 17 year expert on the Brooklyn new development space.

As a native Brooklynite, he’s got a lot to say about the most populous NYC borough.

He recently started a blog, 21Elephants.com covering the residential new development market in Brooklyn.

As an added bonus, I got some details about his Guiness Book of World Records world record for riding every mile of NYC subway system (in about 25 hours).

[The Housing Helix Podcast] Robert Shiller PHD, Yale Professor of Economics, Case Shiller Index, Irrational Exuberance

June 14, 2009 | 10:46 pm | | Podcasts |


Professor Robert Shiller took time out from his busy schedule when he was in New York to pay me a visit and let me interview him for The Housing Helix Podcast.

I invited him after I read his recent Op-ed piece in the New York Times, Why Home Prices May Keep Falling.

Dr. Shiller is well known for many things, including his New York Time’s bestselling book: Irrational Exuberance and his widely referenced monthly state of the housing market tool, The Case-Shiller Index. But he also continues to write about the housing market, having released two books over the past two years:

Last year’s The Subprime Solution: How Today’s Global Financial Crisis Happened, and What to Do about It

and this year’s

Animal Spirits: How Human Psychology Drives the Economy, and Why It Matters for Global Capitalism

I hope you enjoy his insights.

[The Housing Helix Podcast] Barry Ritholtz, Bailout Nation, Fusion IQ & The Big Picture Blog

June 12, 2009 | 10:34 am | Podcasts |


I had the pleasure of speaking with Barry Ritholtz of Fusion IQ and The Big Picture weblog. He’s a wealth of information and never pulls any punches in his characterizations of the current economic mess we find ourselves in. Listening to Barry speak about this whole situation and reading his book is much pretty much required.

The Big Picture is the leading financial weblog with must-read content and it boasts a huge following (self-included).

Barry recently released a terrific book: Bailout Nation: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World Economy. I highly recommend it.

John Cicero has more than twenty five years of commercial real estate valuation experience and is my business partner and managing principal in our firm Miller Cicero, LLC, a commercial real estate appraisal firm covering the New York City region.

He talks cap rates, market trends of various types of commercial properties, his recent market report for Massey Knakal and the political movement in Albany that is of great concern to income property investors in New York state.

Don’t fret, John bifurcates everything to those outside the cap rate mainstream.

[The Housing Helix Podcast] Economist Kevin Gillen PHD, Econsult, Wharton

May 25, 2009 | 10:09 pm | Podcasts |


This week, I have a conversation with economist Dr. Kevin Gillen, Vice President of Econsult and is affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania as a Research Fellow in its Institute for Urban Research, through which he publishes his quarterly updates on the current state of Philadelphia’s housing and condominium markets. He’s been sharing his research each quarter with the readers of my other blog, Matrix for which I am grateful.

In the podcast we cover his Philadelphia Housing Indices, as well as the three key economic hurdles facing the Philadelphia’s housing market:

  1. Problems with the accuracy and proposed redistribution of tax assessments
  2. The controversial 10-year tax abatement
  3. Political turmoil relating to the building trades and the associated above average cost of construction.

Much of his commentary is in the context of the US housing market.
