For the record, Iwog's prediction for 2014 will be dead wrong

This asshole thinks housing prices are going to soar in 2014 and inventory is going to go to nothing and i just wanted to post this thread to have a record, just in case that slimey weasel goes back and changes his prediction, to show what an utter asshole he is when housing prices tank and his wifes investment goes down the gutter in concord.

iwog says

We are going higher in 2014. Probably much higher. Most California counties look like San Diego. Not only are the price gains continuing but new inventory is NOT forthcoming.

now this assholes prediction cannot be changed or edited, and in 2014 we all get to laugh at how wrong he was just like he was in 2010 when he told people to buy homes or else they would be fucked and then prices tanked which other posters have brought up numerous times

the real discussion should be how badly will iwog try to lie to cover up his failed predictions

will iwog lie like a realtor?
will iwog lie like a banker?
will iwog lie just like he always lies?

discuss!!!!

It's still friggin March and prices are already doing exactly what I predicted they would do. Wait til June.

Iwog. That's not sales or inventory. You are not addressing sales or inventory.

1. I've never tied sales to anything I've ever said or predicted.
2. I never predicted falling inventory for Concord. I did say that inventory had not yet bottomed in many California markets (BEFORE they bottomed which means it was a prediction) and I was absolutely right.

the guy makes a grand prediction that inventory is going lower and prices skyrocketing in California

then when that doesnt happen in the market where he's heavily invested in, we're talking about his wifes life savings here, he dances and dances, and then post a graph of San Francisco (a market where he has ZERO investment) and says 'i was only talking about some markets in california'

maybe its a medical condition.

Actual sold prices are where we've been. Asking prices are where we're going. If you're looking to future market action, you have to look at asking prices.

Sold prices were flat through Winter which is extremely abnormal considering prices usually drop 5% or so during the winter.

Right......do you need me to retype the question a third time?

I'll retype my answers a second time.

1. Sales are totally irrelevant and nothing that has ever been part of any of my predictions. Challenging me on them is retarded.
2. I never predicted a bottoming of inventory in Concord, however I did say that inventory was still declining in much of California.

So while I remain reasonable and answer pretty much everything, you're going to do what exactly? Keep running?

Apparently too complicated for YOU, or your reading comprehension...

Just as a refresher for the mentally impaired.....

Inventory and Total Sales IS NOT equal to Listing $/sq. ft...

Figures.

Iwog, despite the fact that you provide thoughtful analysis and have been correct about many facets of California real estate, right now what you are doing is giving the trolls more ammunition - what they want is for you to get agitated (which may or may not have occurred), and keep replying and adding to this thread (which has certainly occurred).

Iwag's sole purpose is to bait you (and others on this forum), so every time you reply to his comments you are pretty much getting tooled.

But, if that's what you and SubOink and others want, then so be it - please enjoy :-)

By the way, I do not consider CiC or Jojo trolls...they may not agree with you, but I do not believe they are trolls.

Actual sold prices are where we've been. Asking prices are where we're going.

Anyone can ask for any price. If it fails to sell it is meaningless.

I've watched these charts for years now. A jump in asking prices almost always precedes a jump in selling prices.

If yo don't know this, it's clear you don't have the experience I do.

Whether iwog is correct because he's a genius or just because he's guessed right, the fact is, he's right. Prices aren't ever going to go down. The United States housing market is global now, and there are a billion or more people in this world that can and will pay all-cash for any house regardless of location and regardless of condition.

My daughter just sold her Barbie dollhouse on Ebay. She was asking $10.00, and after a short bidding war it sold for $375,000 to an investor in China that immediately relisted it for double.

Iwog, what's your take on this?

Here are quotes form Iwog's favorite Go-To site... It doesn't specifically state Concord, but it addresses the general area:

Home sales in Redfin’s 11 West Coast markets fell 13.4 percent in February from the year before, hitting a five-year low in the first two months of the year, and steep price increases are likely to blame.

Sales fell the most in Las Vegas (-22.7%), Sacramento (-21.8%) and Ventura, Calif. (-20.8%). But most West Coast markets have more inventory than this time last year and aren’t hampered by bad weather as many East Coast areas have been, which leaves affordability as the likely culprit for the sales slump.

In February, home inventory grew by double digits in Phoenix (38.5%), Sacramento (23.9%), Riverside, Calif. (22.8%), Ventura, Calif. (22.1%), San Diego (18.6%) and Los Angeles (17.8%), compared with a year ago.

Where a new listing might have attracted 10 or 12 offers last spring, 3 or 4 are coming in now; where 3 or 4 offers would have arrived, the seller is getting 1.

Interesting... And this from Redfin:

According to Redfin Los Angeles agent Eric Tan, “This time last year, sellers could name their price and still get 20 to 30 offers. This year, even homes that are priced competitively are only seeing two to three offers come in, often at or below list price. Pricing appropriately is crucial.”

God is currently ignoring the need of Realtors to feed their families. After years and years of making sure they had the best, he is finally now turning his back. See what happens when you get greedy. Regular almonds wasn't enough, you had to go organic. Regular bread wasn't enough, you had to push for wheat germ free. Regular yogurt wasn't enough, you had to switch to Greek non-fat. Well now you need to switch back and actually suck it up and jump into the real work force. You know, the one where you actually have to contribute to society somehow. Not just get a cut of a simple sale event. God is not your friend anymore.

I call BS on their statements. Either that, or Redfin is wrong. This quote above goes directly again the quotes from Redfin in my post #224 above...

According to Redfin, inventory is higher YoY by double digits and the number of sales (buyer interest) is down YoY by double digits...

So, who's correct.....
