    There would appear to be initial signs that the San Francisco real estate market is beginning to run out of steam in the short term. This is a market which has been described as “red hot” by US real estate experts and, while nothing lasts forever, some investors are a little surprised at this downbeat

    For me it is not a downward market, it is somewhat relative what is happening, but the real estate market is still growing in the United States

    I think low US base rates, as we are seeing in Europe and the UK, are currently the key and offering some support to property prices.

    But those low US base rates are about to change. The financial markets are waiting for it and if the rate goes up we will see what happens with the houses. In England they have been affected by the insecurity of the Brexit concessions
  7. The Fed has suggested on numerous occasions that US interest rates will rise, only to backtrack on this advice. While I agree that worldwide property markets are currently heavily supported by low base rates, I cannot see a massive increase in US base rates in the short to medium term. However, I could be wrong!

    I read a recent report suggesting there is a 76% chance that the Bay Area will experience an earthquake more severe than the 1989 Loma Prieta event over the next 30 years. Not good!
