Gary Keller Shares His Vision At Family Reunion 2008

Real Estate at the Crossroads: Choosing to Thrive

Recapping the shift in the real estate market at Family Reunion, Gary Keller urged attendees to seize the current market to their advantage.  Keller explained that the 10-year run-up in real estate that began in the early 1990s, led to an environment in which homes were no longer affordable, lenders were willing to take unreasonable risks and inventory rose to record levels.

This chain of events led to mortgage lenders pulling back, followed by a credit squeeze, increased inventory, dropping prices, rising defaults, slipping consumer confidence and reluctant buyers.
