Looks like CASH remains king in the market! Investors continue to be driven
out of the bond market into stocks (risky) and into real estate.
People always need a roof over their head no matter what!
Cash buyers also validate the upper-ward pressure on values. No appraisal and
under-writing approval required just someone saying I see value at X dollars and I
want it!!!
