Posted by on 4:12 pm in Buying a home, Market statistics | 0 comments

Are we in a bubble? In 2004, I was just getting into real estate. Those were days where prices were rising and things were moving quickly. And then, they weren’t. The real estate bubble burst. In 2006 we started to see inventory climb, and then in 2007 through 2012 we saw prices come down and down and down.

How would the new tax bill affect real estate?
