Montana-based money manager James Stack, who predicted the last recession in 2005, told Bloomberg the U.S. may be riding high on another bubble “It is 2005 all over again in terms of the valuation extreme, the psychological excess and the denial”  I will be posting our Economic Summit summary projecting into 2018 and beyond to 2020.  It’s always easy looking back, but challenging to predict. All we know is that we are currently at all time market record highs with a consensus our offer activity, days on market and offering prices have tapered off during the last quarter of 2017 and first month of 2018. Sometimes when homeowners are on the fence about selling now or in the near future, it’s safe to say, don’t be greedy. Take advantage of a sure thing. Once rate increases take place, consumer confidence drops and market activity slows down, it’s a slippery slope. No one is immune, not even the Westside.

WHY SANTA MONICA? Is a question I’m always asked when looking at some of our highest real estate values on the Westside.  Aside from the obvious – our  climate, clean air, casual lifestyle and the beauty of the Pacific Ocean hugging us on the West, Santa Monica is a destination point for people, home buyers and corporations from all around the world.   We are a  beach side community of 92,000+residents snuggled into 8.41sq.miles where the sand meets the surf.  I couldn’t imagine living, working or playing anywhere else !
