Real Estate Broker Lawrence Eberhart

Lawrence, do you remember 2007?


Yes, but it is now 2016. Those who purchased real estate in most markets since 2009, have lots of equity. While many were hurt by the downturn in 2007, that was because real estate was highly overvalued due to crazy demand driven by easy financing.


Many saw this as an excellent buying opportunity and now are looking at over 100% equity or more in some of the hottest market such as California, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, etc. That’s why real estate represents the easiest way to build wealth. In other words if you had simply paid $70,000 for a home in North Las Vegas in 2011, you would not have a property valued at approximately $170,000 or more today. Imagine if you could have purchased 5-properties.
