Residential Real Estate Sales Still Rising

There was an interesting article in today’s paper about the residential real estate market in Southern California.  According to the Los Angeles Times the number of sales and the prices gained from a year to year basis in comparing July 2014 to July 2015.  What I found interesting about the article is that it claimed that number of investors are decreasing – meaning that the number of people buying property to develop or hold not as a primary residence appears to be declining.  This may be true because as prices rise it becomes increasingly difficult for an investor to turn a profit on real estate.    The article also noted that the number of all cash sales seemed to be on the decline.
