How do you know if the real estate market is on a consistent upward trajectory?
There would be no need for economists (or palm readers for that matter) if the markets followed a perfectly smooth descent with an equally smooth return to prosperity. The truth is that the only way to be sure that we’ve reached the turning point is to look backwards.
Some things will never change. Buyers have always looked to real estate
to embrace the American Dream; they still want to have independence
from a landlord and to control their own destiny and living
environment. “Home” will always be a symbol of stability and comfort
and ownership will continue to be seen as a mark of success.
What makes the new buyer different is their access to information.

The recent upturn in Bay Area real estate activity has frequently been linked to something that’s been coined as the Facebook Effect.

“You can’t time the market”- How many times have you heard that? The reason this adage is so enduring is because it is so true. Every time there is a change in the real estate market it seems to take buyers, sellers and even REALTORS® by surprise. It seems we all assume that the market will be the same tomorrow as it is today, yet we all know that’s just not how things work. There are few better examples of a cyclical market than real estate.

Is it possible that the near future holds a housing shortage for San Francisco? One of my colleagues recently blogged about how the next generation of home buyers may create a shortage -- let's take a look at the numbers.
Planning on driving over the Golden Gate Bridge this weekend or next? Better plan your route in advance!
