Trends are good. I watch and look at them all of the time. Yesterday I wrote about the overall Us confidence raising. Today I am reading an article about Florida consumer confidence that it is basically flat. When it comes to real estate, whether it is commercial or residential all markets are local. Various segments will have their own anomalies. I am not sure you can generalize a particular segment on a short term basis. Day to day, Month to Month fluctuations will drive you crazy. Perhaps it is best to decide on your personal needs for more than a day a month or a year.
Some decisions will be right on target. Some will not. I often hear buyers and sellers lament woulda, coulda, shoulda. Case in point “I could have bought the same property two or three years ago for half of today’s price”. That is true but at that time you were not ready to pull the trigger.
My point is that you have to make decisions based upon the best information available and your current needs and abilities. I do not mean to oversimplify the process of making a decision however you need to make a decision one whttp://www.floridarealtors.org/NewsAndEvents/article.cfm?p=1&id=312628ay or the other. You can not sit on the sidelines unless you want to lament woulda, coulda, shoulda.
