Housing Crash Is Hitting Cities Once Thought to Be Stable

Housing Crash Is Hitting Cities Once Thought to Be Stable

Despite all the pessimistic view that housing prices have not hit the bottom yet, somehow I think it has. It has dropped below a point where it is attractive for the foreign investors, especially chinese investors who are trying to laundering the dirty money out of China.

What makes a better investment than buying or investing in real estate in the US? I believe that the overall housing prices will gradually rise from then on...The worst is over when the government cannot persuade more house buyers with lots of money incentives on top of the historically low rate.

Yet I think it will still take years for the prices to rebound back...I currently own a house too and I am underwater for about $30k...Yet I will be patient and just let this investment ride. I am living in it too so it does not hurt that much.

Hopefully this kind of new money and investment from foreigner can boost the stock market across the board. Then again I can only hope. KBH is down quite a bit at the time of writing, my account is back down to $10,900.

  4. There will always be booms, there will always be busts. Be patient and your house price will climb again, be wary, in about 10 years or so expect another bust!
