Summary:  The real estate market for Downtown San Diego condos continues to accelerate faster than Vin Diesel in the latest fast and furious.  The latest talk on the town pertains to re-entering yet another real estate bubble.  The current climb in demand and prices is different this time around.  The sub prime loans and shady lending practices of old are gone.  This is an absolutely sustainable rise in prices.  Buyers are buying homes and condos they can actually afford.  We live in a capital market, cycles are assured but…  In this Downtown San Diego real estate broker’s opinion, anyone waiting for this current bubble to burst could be waiting for years.  Even when the eventual price decline does happen, you are most likely looking at a soft cyclical decline and likely no where near the low levels we experienced the past few years.  It’s the right time to sell or buy, don’t get left in the dust!
