I'm in Tampa right now, was thinking of2005-01-19 17:50:36 by whatchagonnado
Buying real estate here because the prices can't be beat, but:
- there's still plenty of open land to keep building out into - and Tampa is one of the biggest cities in Florida.
- the job/economy here isn't the greatest. Despite being a non-liberal state, there doesn't seem to be much economy here other than tourism. And Walmart/service jobs.
- JP Morgan just laid of 1200 peopl...otjobs). I'm in tech, and can't find work here (and this is supposedly the "tech center" of Florida), so I'll probably move back to CA.
- Sinkholes, hurricanes, horribly humid and hot summer weather, and a totally flat (and, to my native Californian sensitibilities, totally boring) natural environment leave a lot to be desired in terms of location.
Just my 2 cents, from someone here.

If you want collective opinions, here's what the mainstream experts in the field think:
I don't think they're too far wrong for the country as a whole. However, what they fail to say is that there will be housing categories, and entire regions, that will more crash than stagnate. My general rule of thumb is "the faster they went up, the faster they'll go down." Sometimes called the arrow e...on relative to inflation. I don't see these high inventories going away any time soon. The constant stream of "bubble" articles in the mainstream press doesn't help - these sorts of articles were very rare until 2005. So things are changing.
In your position, I might make "low ball" offers. Most will be turned down, but eventually you'll get a bargain from someone who really needs to sell.

This is still a great market in most areas of the country. I could write an article right now, quoting hard facts and statistics, to back that up. It would be just as truthful as what the Post just ran.
The only really alarming number is the inventory, and even that's still not out-of-line with historical standards, at least not in the DC area. If sales are dropping, that's only relative t...eal estate investing and not stock investing? The print media relies heavily on real estate for income, far more than on stocks.
P.S. Try reading two newspapers or watching two evening news broadcasts. I'm not claiming it's a conspiracy exactly, but there's a lot more similarities than one might expect. The lead stories are often all exactly the same and they're not what I would've chosen.
