    This article cannot be more true! Investors should realize that the real estate market from 8 years ago was unbelievable. So unbelieveable that it will never happen again. We sent out newsletters to our clients saying this won’t last a year before the mortgage crisis; good thing for them…!!

    I am still writing deals from $150K to $1 million. Real Estate has averaged growth over the long term. The real last down market was in the 80’s. The people that have bought property in the last up market may not (probably don’t) remember the 80’s. To those in the 80’s life was horrendous, but after the 80’s things were great. I don’t know where they are making more real estate – the supply is becoming more and more limited. Be ready for the rate increases that come after a presidential election. And expect more foreclosures of those who bought at the true top of the market. But in the long run, real estate is good food.

    I personally am a little glad that the market is making its way back to a normal level. Sure it was nice a few years ago when anyone could get into anything, but I hated knowing it wouldn’t last.

    I agree with the comment that some investing methods are more speculative than others. I think lots of methods are useless to society too…

    The NH Real Estate Market continues to move. Values have declined and continue with the foreclosures on the rise but also many homes are priced within buyers reach. We continue to have financing available at very low rates. It clearly is not like the market in the 80’s with high interest rates. It continues to remain a great time to buy! Reply Report comment
