If this is a bubble, then it cannot last. One sector of the local economy (high tech) may be doing well, but the national and international forecasts are more gloomy
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
Tim Gullicksen of Zephyr Realty, a San Francisco real estate agent, is announcing that the high prices of real estate properties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area may only be another “bubble” that will soon go down in this current economic state.
“If this is a bubble, then it cannot last. One sector of the local economy (high tech) may be doing well, but the national and international forecasts are more gloomy. At best, the recovery is going achingly slow and unemployment remains high. At worst, we could have a world-wide double dip to our great recession,” Gullicksen said. “So can the vast increases in sales prices for homes in these highly desirable real estate markets really stay up there in the stratosphere? No one knows for sure, but my money is on ‘not likely.’”
From data and analysis of the current real estate market, this potential bubble is a combination of the Facebook initial public offering, historically low interest rates, the most anemic inventory of homes for sale in memory and the collective realization by the market that real estate values aren’t going any lower.
“When you combine economic confidence with a lot of buyers competing for very few listings, you have a recipe for sky-rocketing prices” Gullicksen said.
Properties are selling for 10 to 20 percent above what the recent comparables justify and often receive multiple offers; however, there is no economic recovery underpinning this massive and sudden increases in value.
