WSJ Makes Claim That Home Ownership Is A Good Thing

Especially Right Now When Home Prices Around Woodbridge VA Are Stable

Click the link to the WSJ report at the end of this short post.

We reached the bottom of the market in 2008, and real estate sales have been strong and rising in Prince William County.

This reminds me of two lessons my dear old mentor, Dallas Wood, taught me about rising and falling markets.time magazine story about booming real estate 2005

Dallas said we know when the market has peaked and ready to crash, when the media publishes glowing stories about rising home values making ordinary people wealthy.  He said it was time to cut staff, trim expenses when the media declared, "This market is going up, up, up into the stratosphere"; the market was already tanking.

I asked Dallas, "How will we know when we've reached the bottom of the market?"  He said watch and listen for media pundits to declare the market is in a "free-fall".  The words "free-fall" is a clear indicator that the bottom of the market happened 6-12 months prior.time forecasts doom and gloom

Most important, remember that all real estate is local.

Virginia had a boom and bust; Arizona, California, Nevada, and Florida had an explosion followed by an entire collapse; my home town, San Antonio Texas, poked along at a steady gain in market values at 1.8%-2% per year, 2000 - 2010.
