Investor’s Beware

The market has turned, all the pundits are selling the virtues of a bull market in 2013, and the REIV is complimenting this fact by providing their weekly results that suggest both an increase in the number of properties sold coupled with sales rates in the order of 70%.

If you want to highlight this bull market further, you would be saying that we have the lowest interest rates in over 40 years, a correlation as to the question of ‘cost to rent’ versus ‘cost to buy’, a preceding decrease in levels of value in 2012 of some 0-20% across the board, and maybe more in some localities and market segments.

Yes, the stars, moon and planets are all aligned, but are they? I would say that most private investors are still sitting on their hands.
