won’t find the people you are looking for on this board. Most of the “buyers” here are investors, or those who want to be. As such, we don’t get angry over the price of real estate. We adapt.

Most of the buyers you are looking for don’t want to…or are unwilling to…invest in the knowledge required to acquire a property no matter what the price. The market will ultimately determine what a “fair” price is for a property. What your question should be…I don’t know. But being extremely angry is not it…unless the NYTimes objects and wants to change the laws of supply and demand.

Cordially,

Looking for buyers who are extremely angry (and vocal about it) over the ever increasing price of residential real estate for an article to be published in a newspaper. Linda Lee

I once heard that the fair price for anything is the price that offends both the buyer and the seller.

made from Lemons. Your on the wrong site to find people griping about overpriced houses, this is our lifeblood and one of the basic strategies it to buy low and sell high, so if the product is in demand we make more money, because not only or our profits higher but, our turnaround is faster.

And the second thought is Why would anyone gripe about rising real estate prices. That’s something that is beyond your control. And the things you can gripe about are in your control so you shouldnt have any gripes there either.

The same people who whine when buying at high prices… - Posted by JHyre in Ohio

are the first to sell for top dollar. It’s called the (semi-) free market. What do you want…Congress to pass a law keeping prices low? It’s been tried…and you do NOT want to live in those places, here or abroad. Prices are high in good areas and in a good economy…You CAN get cheap housing in my hometown (Youngstown, OH- BAD economy and BAD area)- if you are crazy enough to live there…so be careful what you ask for.

Linda,

As Soapy said, it’s all a function of supply and demand. When demand outstrips the supply, prices go up. How fast they go up is dependent on the degree of demand. This would be the case with any product whether it be oil or grapes.

There is really no one to be mad at. Prices are a function of the marketplace.
