I was on These Days, KPBS’s morning talk show, today with real estate broker Matt Battiata. It was a good conversation that centered on many of the themes I’ve been hitting on recently — namely that this market is not simple, that understanding it and participating in it requires research and careful, measured thought and analysis.

In other words, it’s really confusing out there.

I mentioned a couple of stories on the air — my recent “Perplexed?” story wrapping in a bunch of numbers and data to conclude that the tea leaves for the local market are tricky to read, and this look at future potential foreclosures because of defaults in Alt-A loans.
