    I think the media is creating a panic!! Just because some idiots borrowed more then they should of does not mean we are going to have hail of brimstone. Real Estate they are not making any more of it so yes maybe it will do a correction but so what thats economics 101. what goes up must go down.

    You’re right . . . I got killed during the stock bubble because I got a bit too greedy. Didn’t analyze stocks anymore – just went with the momentum. That is a quick way to your death. Making money investing requires a fundamental analysis of every situation. Like you said, what goes up must come down – especially if you buy at the top!

    I could not agree more with Joshua. Several pieces of data suggest slowing down in the housing market so caution is needed. But independently of general trends careful analysis and thorough due diligence of any property you will be investing on is a must anyway.
