No matter what the market, people will continue to desire to live in Upland, as it remains one of the most prestigious cities within San Bernardino County. Comparatively speaking, the Upland housing market continues to outpace the bulk of cities in the San Bernardino County. In of September 2007, 10 single family homes and a total of 2 condos/townhomes sold, a huge drop from last month.  Total sales are down 42% for the same period last year in the Inland Valley MLS.  My overall view of the market is slipping a little, go to my other blog listing to see why I feel this way, http://activerain.com/blogsview/228068/Soft-to-Softer-inClosed Sales For September 2007: Up Slightly from Last Month36 Single Family Homes8 Condos/TownhomesPending Sales For September 2007: Down Slightly from Last Mo...

By Ila JosephsReports of an exploding job market is good news for Upland homeowners. The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin reported on Sept. 27 that Milken Institute rates the Ontario-San Bernardino-Riverside market as No. 3 among 200 large U.S. metropolitan areas in job creation and retention, ranking just behind Ocala, Florida, and Wilmington, North Carolina.It makes sense. The LA/Ontario International Airport processes passengers and cargo more easily than the vast airport in Los Angeles, major freeways offer quick access, land costs much less than in Los Angeles or Orange counties, and the large number of people who moved to the Inland Empire in search of lower- cost housing provide a ready source of employees. More jobs will bring more people to the area needing a place to live, and gre...

So many people I come into contact with feel the market is going to drop in price anywhere from 25% to 50% before years end. This comes from the media shouting doom and gloom to sell papers. Give me your thoughts please on what you feel. I will come back in to share my thoughts later. Thanks for stopping in and posting in advance I want to say welcome.
