2016 San Diego Real Estate

2016 San Diego Real Estate

2016 San Diego real estate forecast. I’d like to say that I’ve been in the residential real estate business for over three decades! But, I am certainly not an economic forecaster or financial advisor. What I am, is a California real estate broker.

Many factors affect the economy as well as the residential San Diego real estate market. So, just use this opinion as just that, one broker’s opinion. Before making a decision whether to buy or sell San Diego real estate one should consult with their own accounting and/or financial real estate advisers.
