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!

Can it be true?? Ladies and Gentlemen, no fools’ jokes wen
"My husband and I highly recommend Joseph, he is honest, and straight forward. He won't let you move into a place that is in a bad location. So thankful for that. He isn't just some realtor trying to get a sale. He honestly cares about where his clients are going to live and for that we are so grateful.
We just bought a condominium in Vista, and we absolutely love it. It's in the exact location that we had wanted from the beginning. Joseph is always working hard to make sure you get exactly what you want. When we made an offer on the condo, we were not sure what was going to happen. (We had made an offer on two other houses before this one and both turned down or got better offers.) Well they excepted and we couldn't have been more thrilled. Joseph was in constant contact to make sure that everything was going smoothly and that we were doing everything we needed to do. His assistant Tracey was extremely helpful as well. Answered my calls late at night because I had a question. The process went so smoothly, I kept thinking we had to do something else. We closed less then a month later and were just in awe at how well it went. We will recommend Joseph to everyone who is interested in buying.
Thank you so very much for all your help Joseph Arendsen & group."
