When real estate shows signs of a rebound, investing in real property becomes more popular. There is a right way and a wrong way to go about investing. Here are a few mistakes investors often make: Planning as you go. - The best way to solve the problem is to have lots of activity and make offers on multiple properties. You must also have multiple exit strategies. Some investors buy a property with the intention of selling it or renting it out. What if it doesn't sell?

Buyers finally have the upper hand.     Welcome to real estate's new reality, where prices are down, foreclosures are up, experts are jittery, and a lot of for sale signs are getting weather-beaten. That may be bad news for homeowners, sellers and investors. Buyers on the other hand, have a rare point of advantage.As a buyer, you now have plenty of choice, as well as the upper hand in negotiations. You also still have the benefit of low interest rates. If you're tempted to upgrade yet worry that your home isn't worth what it was six months ago, keep in mind that the home you want to buy is worth less too.

Non-profit groups and legislators are increasing efforts to help people facing foreclosure. Critics state the programs will do little to stop the trend of foreclosures sweeping the nation right now. On Wednesday, the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), a nonprofit devoted to helping people who have been the victim of predatory lending, announced a $1 billion program that will refinance strapped borrowers out of adjustable mortgages with soaring rates into low fixed-rate 30-year loans.Here in our local Eugene market, things are quite stable compared to the national market.

What do you think about the Federal Government or even these non-profit groups stepping in t...

I just love facts and statistics. I know a lot of you who are reading this right now may be rolling your eyes. But to me looking at those numbers tells a different story. It tells us the factors behind every day life in Eugene. It tells us about the plight of our fellow Oregonians, who they are and how they live.Sure there are a lot of things that can not be shown in stats, but you would be amazed how much can be.I was stumbling around the US Census Bureau's website and found these interesting stats:QuickFacts from the US Census Bureau Eugene, OregonQuickFacts · Demographic · Economic · Housing · SocialPeople QuickFactsEugeneOregon Population, 2000 137,8933,421,399 Population, percent change, 1990 to 2000 21.1%20.4% Persons under 5 years old, percent, 2000 5.3%6.5% Persons under 18 year...
