In association with Silver Professionals and WSDI Chicago, Employment 2.0 is the only live call in program specifically focused on the "successfully unemployed." Employment 2.0 is a public service program. We provide an opportunity for job candidates to call our program, or to record a "personal" elevator pitch. A job candidate has only 60 seconds to impress an employer. We also welcome employers to call in with their specific needs for their organizations. Our special candidate hotline is: 312 880-7316. We will do the rest. Employers.General public..pls. call in w/ your specs on your professional openings and put back to work some of our vets/great minds..Call in # is 312 880-9734 (WSDI)

Employment 2.0's town hall format will offer a variety of guests including authors, career experts, employers and a variety of other valuable tips. Our goal is to educate and teach people how to jump start their employment search, start a business or even change careers.

Employment 2.0 will take "live" phone calls and offer our caller 60 seconds, tell us everything an employer needs to know. For the broadcast weary, we offer a special candidate hotline to record their personal elevator pitch. Every week we will play and offer advice to some of our recorded elevator pitches.

Carpe Diem...Real Estate Update

We believe very strongly that now is the time to buy a home. Some will say we are just saying this to create real estate transactions and commissions. Because of that, today we will quote what those outside the real estate profession are saying to the people who look to them for financial advice.

The Wall Street Journal
Last week, in an article entitled It’s Time to Buy That House, the WSJ told their subscribers:
“It’s an excellent time to buy a house, either to live in for the long term or for investment income…Houses aren’t the magic wealth creators they were made out to be during the bubble. But when prices are low, loans are cheap and plump investment yields are scarce, buyers should jump.”
In an article two weeks ago, MarketWatch.com (the on-line blog for WSJ) told their readers:
“Now could be the best time in history to buy a home.”
In a report to their subscribers, Capital Economics reported that:
“The previous declines in house prices and the more recent drop in mortgage rates to record lows have created an unusual situation in which the median monthly mortgage payment is more or less the same as the median rental payment.”
Why is this important? Last week, Forbes explained to their readers:
“If rents simply kept up with inflation at a 3.2% annual increase, a $1,500 rent payment would cost that renter nearly $900,000 over the next 30 years. The same $1,500 payment made to their mortgage would be only $540,000 (because the payments don’t increase with inflation).”
They went on to explain the advantages of homeownership during retirement:
“Even with a dismal 1% growth rate over 30 years, a $300,000 property would appreciate well over $100,000 giving the homeowner an additional nest egg for retirement…
At a time when retirement is becoming much more challenging, an extra $400,000 (or likely more) can make a major difference not to mention the impact of NOT having to pay a mortgage.  How much less would you have to save for retirement if you didn’t pay the mortgage?”
Bottom Line
When the iconic financial newspaper and the iconic financial magazine say that it now makes financial sense to purchase a house, perhaps it’s time to buy a home.
