Real Estate Investors are obviously watching articles like this one in Yahoo Finance. The decline in home prices, and the future outlook is critical in buying decisions.

This article has some interesting tidbits.  One is the impact of last year’s tax credits: “Some economists say the tax credits merely postponed the bottoming out that’s occurring now.”

The article also explains why real estate investors are so critical in the recovery: “The supply of homes that people actually want to buy — and can afford — is much narrower. “Some people who want to buy don’t have the time, desire or energy to fix up a foreclosure, so they don’t buy them,” said Ron Shuffield, president of Esslinger-Wooten-Maxwell Realtors Inc. in Miami, where foreclosures or short sales make up two-thirds of homes sold.”

In many markets, those looking to make an investment in real estate are buying a large percentage of the homes. The key for real estate investors is knowing if the market is close to bottoming out. Any real estate investor trying to time the bottom is risking missing out on a lot of opportunity. The reality is we will know know it has bottomed out for 6 months to a year AFTER the fact. The real question – if I make an investment in real estate, will that investment move up from the time I purchase it over the long term?

Those real estate investors that believe that are going to be the ones that take advantage of this market. Want to learn what is the real estate business like and how you can take advantage of this market? Go to www.homevestorsfranchise.com
