The Lot is Flat as you would expect in Beverly Hills Flats, with lots of outdoor area with an English garden with box hedges and a pool of course. There is a separate guest house to the South side of the property which would take one for team if an errant shanked golf ball ran amiss. Inside the home it has a dramatic entrance, with two huge public rooms with huge glass sliders. There is a 6-8 person movie theater and open contemporary Kitchen. The Master has its own wing with a beautiful array of French windows. This home is truly special and a 30M sale puts it up with some of the best the flats has to offer.

Midyear 2014 real estate market

A lot of people are wondering what is going to happen next with the real estate market!

We know that the market has rebounded substantially from 2009 and 2010. We are close to the previous price peak in 2007.

The question is- where are we heading next? I think we have 10%-20% more upside at the very least, because the new peak is always higher than the old peak. We should reach 2007 prices by end of this year.

prediction for end of year

My prediction for end of year

From there we will see. I think there is a lot of room to go up beyond that. It won’t be based on inflation though, it will be pure speculation combined with loosening of lending standards. This will be a very strong sellers market for the next two years.  I predict there will be a very limited supply of houses as investors buy multiple properties that will drive prices up.

Peak Prediction

Peak Prediction: 2017 or 2018

Buying will become very dangerous for short term holders by end of next year.

What do you think is going to happen in the real estate market? I would love to hear your thoughts and comments
