 “Real Estate is like a gold-rush; the only people making the money are those who sell the pans”


Real Estate is like a gold-rushPreviously in Part 1 of this series, we covered the ones who sell the pans and make the money from those who bought those pans hoping to find that big gold nugget.

Repeat after me, “Today’s highly inflated real estate market is like a gold-rush; the only people making the money are those who sell the pans.”

In Part 2 of this series, I will go further in explaining why buying an investment property at today’s stratospheric prices is either gambling or simply plain foolishness triggered by panic buying.

Does anyone of you know the famous historical event, ‘The Californian Gold Rush’? This famous event happened during the period of 1848-1855California, USA. When gold was suddenly found, the news had brought more than 300,000 people from all over the United States and even as far away as China and Australia to seek a quick fortune.

There is a common language especially in the banking industry when real estate booms and euphoria filled the minds of fools, and led them to become mindless herds of cows being brought to the slaughtering houses even without them knowing.

In booming times like today, the banks are saying to real estate developers, “You bring the dirt, and I’ll bring the money. Let’s make money together out of those fools!”  What a great mutual business relationship.

You bet it doesn’t take a fool to guess who that ‘dirt’ is. Well, who knows? A fool doesn’t realise he is a fool until a bigger fool comes along.
