Good thing is that with this crappy economy there aren't any new idiot startup guys that think they can do this. But it's tough. I was hopeful in June when we got our first housing development job since '07, but right now there is just nothing. If it's still like this in January/February (bidding season) I'm really gonna get nervous.
People don't realize that these rich investors are now sitting on their money and not investing, hunkering down going into survival mode right now because they are worried about what the government is going to do. And I don't blame them. It just sucks right now.
