Oh the Places We Will Go!

April 19, 2011

The Anniversary of the 1906 Earthquake, it’s always a good time to reflect on where we’ve been and where we are going.

Some people think we are going good places:

“It’s cities like San Francisco that will see the fastest economic growth over the next 15 years and beyond.” To read the article click here.

“‘We’re seeing optimism and confidence in all private industry sectors,’ Jim Wunderman, CEO of the council, said in a statement. “According to our survey, the best place to look for a job over the next six months is in San Francisco, on the Peninsula and Silicon Valley, in industries like trade, professional and business services, and IT … While most executives (53 percent) expect their workforces to remain the same over the next six months, 31 percent plan to add jobs. The highest percentages for job growth were in San Francisco (45 percent) and Santa Clara County (38 percent).”  To read this article, click here.

Some people think we are going bad places: “Bay Area Condominium Sales, Prices Tanking.” (Don’t worry it’s not true, but if you want to read that article anyway, click here.)

And some people think we’ve already arrived: “S.F. tech jobs climb near level of dot-com peak.” To read that article, click here.

As for me, I’m confident everything’s going to be all right. I’m just looking forward to the journey. Even stodgy USA today has noticed that the city is the place to be.  If the trends towards urban living are so strong that Cincinnati is on its way up, San Francisco will just get even better!  However, there are bound to be bumps along the way. If you or someone you know is experiencing a bump involving real estate, remember that I’m here and ready to help.
