We've gone to war before without all those things happening. I am not in the prognostication business and frankly haven't heard much talk of this in my area. People are more concerned with rising health costs, rising gas prices from the Houston floods, taxes, etc.

I survived the worst economy of my lifetime and worst market since the Great Depression-why would I worry about a war somewhere else?

Bring it and see what I do; we've been at war most of my business years, I adapt and overcome.

I'm more concerned about a civil war than any other war right now.  But, like Michael Jacobs I have no control over it so I have my say when it's time to vote then work to stay on the positive side and carry on.

I don't worry about tomorrow because worrying doesn't change anything. Will I lose my leg tomorrow? Will my clients fire me? Will my wife leave me for a Hollywood star? Will Yellowstone erupt and wipe my town off the face of the earth? Will we go to war with Korea and see a major impact to our economy or possibly lose loved ones?

I can't control any of those. I put my trust in God and do my best with what He's given me.

Going to was is a concern for everyone.

That's why fighting 'over there' has always been the better option.

Right not the threat to my business is a low pressure system approaching the Florida Keys.

We can't really control those things, but if they do happen, there will be an overwhelming market opportunity as well.  Prices may come down, rates would definitely be down, and many buyers would be able to enter the maket who are currently priced out.


There's opportunity in every market, we just need to know how to adapt.

I like Michael Jacobs answer.


Yet, something has "spooked" the real estate market here I think. Its not acting "normal", well like it has the past months, if you would ever call that normal.

This wont really be a "war". More like a slaughter for them. War is an interesting paradox. We know the obvious downsides but jobs, rebuilding, enormous funds moving around & other major benefits come out of it. It resets and defines all involved & their positions as well as beliefs.

More than a stock option erosion. In our area people put downpayment from stock options. With an Apple, Google, Tesla wiped out you can bet there will be many less people able to qualify for mortgages. With that being said I lost out a home near Apple bid $230K over was not even contacted by listing agent for more rounds of countering. Bottom line: It is tough to get anything near high tech center. San Francisco homes are still appreciating way over national average.

With this guy as our SecDef, this will be the quickest war in history.  This is the guy who busted out the MOAB and put nukes on the table for N. Korea.  I've never been so excited to be alive!!!!!  Especially since CA is in the cross hairs.
