Alas, Gideon, while my misguided and dangerous liberal beliefs may have steamed the vegetables of the true-Conservative set reflected in your brother’s mad rantings, your – dare I say rose colored view – of real estate surely has starched the shorts of the bearish among this readership as well. I too tell clients to view their property as “shelter”, not worrying so much about turning a profit for many years. But if you overpay $1 million, then sell five years later, you just paid $547.94 a night plus utilities and maintenance. That’s a pricey night out, even with this friend. You are correct that Club Road and associated Riverside are selling well, but I would suppose the old fashioned notion of scarcity (waterfront land) has contributed somewhat to making the place a little more fashionable. Just like her

    what’s funny is that everyone here in the comments section is an expert on real estate prices and speculation, and they sit in their bull/bear camps just as they sit in their partisan camps. but are they all logging in from their yachts, bobbing up and down off of the seychelles enjoying pol roger cuvee winston churchill? nope – they are just the physical manifestations of the bid/ask spread.

    your best bet on price trends: forget the listing comps, look at the sales comps, and from here, have reasonable confidence that the long term trend (1-2 years +) is up

    what will happen in the next quarter? nobody knows – period
