Could Recent San Fernando Valley Home Sales Numbers Reflect Buyer's Growing Understanding Of The Market?
It's a difficult thing to "play" a market correctly. It's counterintuitive at best. When analysts talk about a market being "down", that doesn't help to motivate the average consumer into "jumping in". However, the savvy Investor knows that profits are made by "buying in a down market" and "selling in an up market". Even though this is common knowledge … it's not a common activity to the average home buyer.
Could this recent activity be a reflection that home buyers are beginning to feel comfortable in this market? REO's are no longer driving the market and it has become more "traditional" and "normal". The recent numbers posted in San Fernando Valley Home Sales could be the indication that Buyer's are becoming more comfortable with the market in general. We will have to wait and see.
