"The local housing market is RED HOT"


According to Mark Thorngren, is his post updated 12-15-06, "the local housing market is RED HOT". HUH??:

The local housing market is RED HOT. The homes here appreciated approximately 35% in the last year! You can find a brand new 3 bedroom home for under 350K. Luxury homes normally begin at about 550K. Similar homes in Ventura County -further South -will typically sell for 3 times this price! Bakersfield has a population approaching 300,000 people and staddles the Kern River.

He likes to use lots of exclamation marks! At the ends of sentences! That makes him a real estate expert!

How can the real estate market be "red hot" if an average sh**box is $350k and you can rent the same sh**box for less than $1,000/mo?

"and staddles the Kern River"

Actually, straddles the remains of the Kern River, know as the Kern creek.

These guys should go to jail, or be sued, for hyping a dead market. Isn't this similar to pumping and dumping stocks? Why are they allowed to do this, seems like the same thing to me.
