    Level heads will prevail. Don’t jump into this market based on fear that you’ll be left behind. Jump in because you like the house and want to live there. It is an indesputible fact that here’s a lot of inventory coming soon. Not that it isn’t a still buyer’s market, just that the rules of value and ‘location, location, location, still apply. Beware of the overzealous house-flipper.

    Don’t ever believe the hype that pressures you into a decision you aren’t truly comfortable with.

    Historically every ten years real estate value has doubled. I speak of my own experience.
    In 1982 I purchased my first house on the corner of two busy streets in Pasadena , California. At that time that house was on the market for over a year and the interest rate was 19%. The owner of the house was very frustrated and decided to carry the entire loan at 11% with a little down payment. I approached the seller and purchased that house for $120000.

    Five years later in 1987 realtors were knocking on my door trying to get a listing due to a surge in market by influx of buyers coming from China. I sold my house and made $60000. then I invested that money in San Clemente and purchased two homes . In 1990 both of those homes doubled in value. I sold those and then bought at the time of deep recession on Orange county when nobody would buy any homes . In 1993 Orange county filed for the Bankruptcy and there were thousands of homes all over for sale. I started buying homes and kept them until 2004. and you know about the real estate market during 2000 and 2009.
    Remember: When everyone sells, you buy. and when everyone buys you sell.
    Good luck.

    Have to disagree with this, albeit wasn’t your story. Broke people buying houses only serves to make them more broke. They can’t afford a down payment, they can’t afford the upkeep, they can’t afford the insurance and taxes that go with it, and then we find ourselves in a housing/economic slump that we’re in now when these people get foreclosed on.

    Granted, it should be everyone’s goal to eventually own a home, but only when the time is right. It’s much better to rent for a period of time, build up some savings, and then start the home purchasing process.

    I appreciate your site though!
