    It seems as if the signs of a re-inflated bubble economy are everywhere. Stocks through the roof, ridiculous prices for IPO’s, housing up 20-30% in a year, inflated hiring numbers, banks making so much money that they routinely settle ambulance chaser lawsuits for hundreds of millions, malls bursting with shoppers maxing out credit cards, empty lots dozed and graded for housing few can afford.

    Can you say “It’s like 2007 all over again”. I knew that you could!

    It has me cringing and then some.

    It looks good right now but with odd ball numbers for unemployment between counties in NoCal from 4.7 to 7.8 in less than 30 miles, it begs to ask how that makes for a stable environment long term.

    Let’s keep a few fingers crossed.

    Loan underwriting is pretty tight. Appraisals are painful not liberal. The cash investors are doing some damage restricting affordable supply.

    Bubble maybe but lots of deep pockets to ride out a downturn.

    The 2014 inequality mantra from D.C. might open up the liberal loan policies again……then cross your arms and legs too!
