I think WE ARE in a housing bubble | Bay Area Housing Market 2021 update

What the f—? A couple of months ago, I put out a video on YouTube talking about the housing bubble and how I didn’t think we were in one. At the time, I had some good reasons to think that. However, the numbers I was just looking at, and some anecdotes that I want to share with you have me feeling different today. So today, I’ve got two stories and a little bit of data that I want to share with you which I think you will find interesting. Hopefully, this will be able to help you make a good decision when it comes to buying or selling your home.

So for today’s video, I’m going to talk about three things that I thought would be a really big deal about moving to the center part of the island.

What The Psychology of Money Taught Me About Buying Real Estate in 2021

“No one’s crazy.” “Pessimism is seductive.” These are just two chapters from a book I recently read and ended up really loving the author’s creativity and writing style.

There are a couple of things that I pulled out from this book that I think are absolutely critical for anyone looking to buy, sell, or invest in real estate in 2021.

CALIFORNIA PROP 19: What you need to know

So the voting is over and California Proposition 19 won by the narrowest of margins, but it still won. But what does it actually mean to you? How is it going to affect your real estate transactions?

Housing Bubble

2021 Market Crash? Why we ARE NOT in a housing bubble.

Is the bay area housing bubble going to pop soon? My prediction? No. Because we’re actually not in a bubble.
Before you make a judgment on this video because it’s a real estate agent talking about how we’re not in a bubble, just give me a chance first to tell you what I’m seeing. I did a bunch of research this week on this exact topic because I was going to make a video about how the market is a bit over inflated and we’re probably going to crash because that’s what everyone else is doing on YouTube.
