It was only a matter of time. This week I got 3 separate calls from people looking for houses and when I asked what they wanted in their new homes, they all said "Oh, it's not for me personally, I want a real deal, put a few bucks into fixing and putting it right back on the market". The last time I heard that was in 2001. They're Back!
To me, this is a good indication that the real estate bottom is near. Interest rates are low. Investors are returning. There are real bargains to be had and the stock market is still too scary for most people. Where do they turn? REAL ESTATE.
The best barometer of all... My phone is ringing. http://sobaycalmls.com/
