    This is wonderful prediction for those of us doing PL/TD in the bay area! But keep in mind, it is only one opinion from one person, so don’t bet all your eggs in this basket!

    Happy Lending and Blissful Living!

      Thanks Jianlong Lou – You are absolutely correct, it is important to understand that looking at the “big picture” and putting together many opinions and sources of information, before you make a decision relative to Real Estate Investing, is crucial. This Blog is just one of many sources of information and of course, does not want to have anyone think it is the final word. Just a source of good content – at least that is the goal. Your opinion and advice are so appreciated. Best, Barry
