Last week, our team and myself attended the annual National Real Estate Conference downtown where we were fortunate enough to be audience to a multitude of panels comprised of the best-of-the-best in all areas of real estate - many market issues were discussed but the topic brought up by all panelists from builder reps, to city councilmen, to economics professors surrounded this mounting nationwide concern of a potential market bubble.
Let's set the record straight here... experts agree - the issue is not when the bubble will happen, but rather when will this inventory crisis end ?!
Let's compare this year's numbers to when we did experience the market crash in 2007 - the calculated scales are currently tilted slightly in favor of buying vs. renting, versus the extreme opposite where 2007 pointed severely in favor of renting as the more affordable option (when considering renting costs vs. the current conventional loan offerings). Also in 2007, we were building in excess with 225,000 homes per year (in California), however despite today's population having grown by 4 million, we are building under 80,000 homes per year. What shocks me here is how we are growing by nearly 400,000 people each year, yet only building 80,000 new homes..?! Something doesn't add up here!

That's it... I Need to Set the Record Straight...We are NOT Facin
"Joseph with the Arendsend Group was the Agent that helped us to buy our first home and we could not have been happier with the experience. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry. He was able to take the time to hear what our wants and needs were as well as give us insight on things that could be beneficial to us in the long run. He found us the perfect home for our lifestyle and budget, as well as a great investment for our future.
He made the process very easy and stress free cooridinating the loan as well as the notary. I was most inpressed with how he made himself available whenever we had questions (as I am the type to ask ALOT of questions). The seller of our home wanted to close very quickly and Joseph made it happen working hard to get all of our ducks in a row so that escow would be easy and quick.
I have nothing but good things to say about purchasing my first house. I expected it to be very difficult being a first time buyer, but I couldn't believe how easy it was. Thanks to our Agent.
Joseph also does Property Management, so when the time comes to use the purchase of our home as an income property...there is no one else I would trust to help us put that together.
Great experience! Thank you Joseph and the Arendsen Group!"
