Wow. I read a lot of articles about real estate. There are so many “experts” in this field it boggles the mind and it’s a wonder that I’m still sane. So many experts are predicting the market. “Housing prices to soar!”; “Prices will reach above the value of before that last crash!”; “The next crash is on it’s way!”; “Dump your real estate now, a market crash is happening soon”!
It gives me a headache.
Here’s what I do know...Nobody knows what’s going to happen tomorrow. Sure, these experts are good at analyzing the market, and can make educated guesses. But, unless you make all of your money from risky real estate investments, calm down. In the end, everything will be just fine. I’m not saying that you should bury your head in the sand, but try to take a step back and put it all into perspective. Besides, as Ray Brown once said: “The best time to buy a home is always 5 years ago.”
