I Survived Real Estate 2016 Announced!

Experts to Discuss California’s Real Estate Bubble and Digital Disruption at Charity Event Organized by The Norris Group

YORBA LINDA, Calif., Aug. 9, 2016 – Real estate professionals in California wait on pins and needles as they navigate California’s unusual real estate market. Prices continue to increase under the pressure of record-low housing supply, life-time-low interest rates, and bullish demand. How high can California go? Is a crash inevitable in 2017?

“Some California markets have blown through their past peak prices,” says Bruce Norris, President of The Norris Group and host of I Survived Real Estate. “Distressed inventory has been replaced with sellers that have equity, institutional buyers have moved on to greener pastures, and interest rates could start with a two in the year ahead. But, our network is nervous and increasingly cautious.”

Norris says the US has never experienced such anemic GDP growth in combination with an unemployment rate so low. Real estate professionals are watching affordability numbers descend at a time when wage growth has stagnated, the political environment has people playing conservative, and even extremely qualified borrowers struggle to get financing. Many opportunities for land for sale are available, but currently unfortunately people are struggling. Should a person really wish to purchase land or property alternatives and organizations that offer them exist of course, but there is no denying that the situation is worrisome. Add to that the fear that technology will displace many pieces of the real estate industry and it’s no wonder industry professionals are concerned.

Norris has assembled a panel of real estate experts on single family homes to address the current state of real estate and its implications for consumers and real estate professionals during his 9th annual “I Survived Real Estate” charity gala, which is scheduled from 4 to 10:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda.  The values of underlying properties will fluctuate and may be worth more or less than than initially paid. Additionally, there is no guarantee the investment objectives will be met; therefore, if you are looking to buy a property we suggest to do it now, you can start off by checking the single family houses and also the Luxury Townhouses for Sale.

Other topics of discussion will include digital disruption in real estate, California buyer demographics, Millennial and Baby Boomer ownership trends, and the forecast for a post-election real estate market,  that include real  estate marketing and the sell and preparation of houses for this purpose, including the house of services like select blinds canada which is perfect for any house’s windows.
