OFFICIAL MAGAZINE OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

Daily Real Estate News  |  January 11, 2010  |   Analyst: Housing a Good Investment in 2010
Forbes housing reporter and analyst Francesca Levy makes some thought-provoking predictions in the latest issue of the magazine.

She predicts:
  • Real estate will be an attractive investment strategy in 2010 with wealthy investors devoting an increasing segment of their portfolios to it.
  • Loan modifications will result in more people who should probably be facing foreclosure slipping deeper into debt.
  • Cities like Omaha, Neb., and Buffalo, N.Y., which avoided the housing bubble and most of the bust, will be models for cities trying to avoid another bubble.
  • Financial troubles in Dubai will ripple through the U.S. luxury market, creating energy in a market that has been stagnant.
