Went to an Westside open house on the weekend. 300 attendees apparantly over 2 days.
House went for 170k over asking, yet there were only 4 bidders, all Chinese.
The realtor said he felt the market was peaking,
I guess as long as Chines immigrants are buying-the run will continue?
Whats your opinion Larry?
