Housing prices in SoCal are going UP!

Posted by Connie Gohata on Friday, March 31, 2017, In : Building Wealth through Real Estate 
Time to get on the bandwagon - time to buy.  Why?  well, if you keep your property for 5 years, it could appreciate by a lot of $$!!  Then you can use this money to put a small down on another house - move there, and rent out the first house.  Rents are going up, too!  You have a win-win situation, using leverage.
