By going back in history you can learn the cause and effect that created many of the financial moments of the past. One of the moments I have been focusing on was the recession between 1978 and 1982.

Even though real estate in Houston tends to be on the cheap side.
There are a few neighborhoods that are turning into the Texas version
of Malibu. Spring Branch and Spring Valley off I-10 are two of these
areas. I was driving through there the other day, and I was amazed by
how these communities were being transformed. Land values in the
area alone will go for $350K and up. Some people are just fixing up
the original 1950's homes, others are ripping them down and building
custom million dollar estates. I noticed this beautiful Spring Valley home for sale
on the corner of
Bingle and Westview currently for sale. What is great about the homes
in Spring Valley is the high number of million dollar homes. I give it
5 years before you won't be able to get a home in this area for under a
million dollars. At $407K this one is a steal. You have to see all
to appreciate it.

Here are my predictions on Goog

I explore the Cost and Benefits of upgrading from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom house. This is something that amazingly many do not do before buying a home. The large number of sub primes loans that are going default are evidence of this.

Most people make many assumptions in life, one of them is that a mortgage is just part of the american dream. You buy into the BS of having the interest as a tax write off. And then 30 years later ( if you are in the same house), you own your home. But too many people are buying a home without knowing what they really bought. In this article I expose many of the realities that your realtor and bank would rather you not know.
