So far this year the DJIA ( Dow Jones Industrial Average) is down 14.44%!! I am curious to know why people aren't taking their money out of the stock market and putting it into real estate. The selection of property on the market is higher than it has been in years. Jefferson county washington state is experiencing a slow market, but prices haven't plummetted. The time on the market has increased considerably, but the price has only come down a little. But there are more homes to choose from. This is a great time to buy. Interest rates are still very good.
