Tip of the Iceberg by Bruce Norris - 01/26/10 05:29 PM
California Comeback? What we see on the surface of the real estate market looks benign. Below the surface, however, looms trillions of dollars of problems we are attempting to ignore. Conducting business in the most unnaturally manipulated market ever seen has been challenging to say the least. And that’s exactly why you must attend our upcoming event, The Tip of the Iceberg, on February 27th in Costa Mesa. Over the last three years, California real estate has been decimated with several California markets seeing price declines in excess of 50%. Many are now pointing to a “Comeback” and the numbers provide (0 comments)

He spent 30 years as a pest management consultant, and gained a large portfolio of rental properties during that time. Bruce begins by asking how Randy’s auction properties get purchased, and what the sellers’ perspective is towards their property values. Randy is soon going to have his largest auction.

Right now, nice properties in nice areas (0 comments)
