Loss In Value $ = $209,765 so loss per year (/ 5 years) = - $41,953 per year.

Future Low Value (2021 estimate) is based on decline starting in 2016 and declining for 5 years *** Sample purchase at 'bottom of market' in February 2012 for $268,810 median price **** Gross Profit = 2016 “High” Price or “Future Value” minus the 2012 PP of $268,810. ***** Gross Profit ROI assumes a 20% down payment on $268,810 pp = 53,762 so Sell Example = 199,520/53,762 = 371% GAIN and Hold Example = -10,245/53,762 = - 19.1 % LOSS. . Net Profit ROI would change (and loss would be greater) when down payment, holding costs, costs of sale, etc are factored in.
You can see from these Important Examples that buying at the top of a market or selling at the bottom of a market is a VERY COSTLY mistake.

We track the Market Conditions with Custom “In-House” Methods

Compare the Current Market with Historic Trends
Then Create a Custom Action Plan For You To Implement
Strategic Planning Example:
Whether you are just starting out your real estate adventure or are a seasoned real estate investor understanding this information can Save or Cost you MILLIONS of dollars over your lifetime. A twenty five year old that purchased their first home in 1980 for $ 100,000 then selling at the top and purchasing again at the bottom of the market so by 2015 they would realize over $1.1M in tax free appreciation and savings.
THE MATH: 1980-1989 is up 201k-100k = 101k, 1989-1997 is down 201k-167k = 34k, 1997-2007 is up 594k-167k = 427k, 2007-2012 is down 594k-268k = 326k and 2012-2015 is up 489k-268k= 221k which accounts for combined appreciation and savings of $ 1,109,000.00
The $1.109M is not adjusted for inflation, home improvement, interest income or gain on the funds during ‘non-owner’ times, getting a ‘bottom feeding discount’ on buys, etc. so actual $ be higher that the estimated $1.1M. In this scenario it would be necessary to rent a primary residence during the ‘down swings’ but even if a couple had to rent for ½ of the time (17.5 years or 210 months) at $ 2,000 per month average which would be around $420,000 but that would still net over $ 680,000. And more than likely an individual or couple could have used the funds saved to purchase additional properties during the 35 years and their net worth through simple real estate ownership would be well above $ 1,000,000.
The Reality Is... 99% of Home Owners AND
95% of Investors “Didn’t See It Coming”.
From 2006 through today many homeowners in CA have lost their home to foreclosure and many of those were investors. Except for a relatively small number home owners and investors with strategic plans to avoid market loses MOST home owners and small and LARGE investors (bond funds, mortgage backed securities, etc.) lost a combined trillions of dollars.
You now have the basic information and resources to avoid that happening to you and your loved ones.
There will be many losers again in the next market cycle... DECIDE to be a WINNER instead!
The One Minute is about up...
3 VERY IMPORTANT Points
1. Market Conditions ARE Changing
Do Your Research
See historical examples of how those changes have affected homeowners and investors
Monitor the CORRECT predictive indicators
If you agree Market Decline is coming... how will it affect you?
2. Take Action
Determine Your #’s for your property (ies).
Follow Us on Social Media for updates, market alerts and updated housing numbers to compare to your neighborhood.
Make a Plan
Act on that Plan
3. Who should you tell about this?
Your CPA and Financial Advisor to get them ‘on board’ with planning.
Business partners to plan for decrease or increase in business.
Set Up Mastermind Group to create opportunities of the coming changes.
EXTRA IMPORTANT POINT:
Give Extra Thought and Special Attention to those nearing retirement or now retired.
Help shepherd and protect those unaware of the coming changes. Seniors, retired, nearing retirement, fixed income, etc.
So... The FIRST THING IS… Why Does Real Estate Matter?
Real Estate Affects ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE because of it’s long reach into many industries like construction, maintenance, sales, financing and the momentum of those affect the costs of materials, labor, money / lending, etc. And when the market is going up... unemployment is down, tax revenues (city, state and federal) are up, consumption is up and newly created equity in property is used to start new businesses by pulling equity directly from property or by investments in bonds or the stock market with the additional disposable income present.
In a declining market... the opposite is true and since California has greater ‘market swings’ than most other states when the market goes down here it goes down even more as a percentage of total price. Savvy investors know this and take full benefit from the highs and lows of California Real Estate.
“Successful Real Estate Ownership, where equity is intact or extracted prior to market loss, is a leading indicator for Quality of Life, Financial Security and Happiness in Retirement.”
Source: Retirement Survey, July 2015
REAL ESTATE MATTERS because most do not consider their home a source of Family Net Worth or financial security until they are nearing retirement or have a ‘life event’ where they need the equity in the property (both circumstances do not usually lend well to be able to qualify to easily refinance the house) so are forced to ‘fire sell’ in a ‘financially distressed’ sale or pull the needed equity out through sub-prime high cost loan programs or reverse mortgages both which have inherent drawbacks.
AND... whether you work with a different company or The Experts at Max Profit be sure to Maximize your profits by taking advantage of ALL the TAX ADVANTAGES like the ALL IMPORTANT “2 Year, $250/500k” exemption that you can repeat every two years! (see description below and details in “Profit” tab)

The Two Year $ 250/500k Tax Exclusion
To qualify for the $250,000 / $500,000 (individual / married) home sale exclusion, you must own and occupy the home as your principal residence for at least two years before you sell it. The qualifying property may be a house, apartment, condominium, stock-cooperative, or mobile home fixed to land.
You do not have to be living in the house at the time you sell it as your two years of ownership may occur anytime during the five years before the date of the sale.
If you meet all the requirements for the exclusion, you can take the $250,000 / $500,000 exclusion any number of times. But you may not use it more than once every two years.

We Define Success!!!
We break down the process, create terms and define the meaning behind the actions required to make the most money possible in the sale of your property. Below is an example of how Max Profit defines the terms and details the process so it is a simple, natural and intuitive path to your Max Profit.
Max Sale Price and Max Profit
Max Profit Condition and “As Is” Condition
“Prep Items”, “Prepare Costs” / “Prepare Time” and “Profit Penalty”
MaxSale Price = The estimated final sales price earned when property is in MaxSale Condition and adjusted for MaxProfit factors.
MaxProfit = Maximum Profit is usually associated with the highest sale price but there are other factors to consider. Factors such as market trends, time on market, owner tax scenarios, seller financing and extreme property conditions. Rarely a property (residential home, vacant land or commercial building) will be in extreme condition with such disrepair or environmental issues that repairing the property or problem will be more costly than property is worth. MaxProfit also presumes the owner or holding entity of property wants to Maximize Profit, is willing and capable of accomplishing the physical work required to property and the other paperwork and planning required (installment sale option, seller financing, tax strategy, etc.) to earn MaxProfit.
A seller of an investment property may offer the buyer an installment sale with seller financing to distribute the taxable income over a period of years.
A seller of vacant land may offer to subordinate their seller financing note and extend escrow so that developer has preparation time prior to close of escrow and is in stronger financial position to complete the project so seller’s carry back note can be paid off.
1031 Exchange, 55+ Tax Base Transfer, 2/5 year 250/500k tax exemption
Max Profit Condition = The condition of the property that is most likely to acquire the maximum sale price and is at the top of its Max Profit Category. The results of this condition are multiple buyers would want to acquire property, there are no distractions from value (leaky roof, wet walls, missing required appliances, etc) and both buyers and appraisers feel property is at or near its highest and best use. Work required to earn this condition may include replacement of old appliances, painting, select new flooring, landscape work and mini staging of property.
Min Sale Condition = Only the minimum work completed, usually because seller does not have the time or resources to do more.
“As Is” Condition = Condition of property when seller is unable or unwilling to do work on property. Little done, maybe trash picked up and lightly cleaned.
Prep Tasks = Work required to raise property to “Max Profit Value”.
Prepare Costs = The cost to bring property to similar condition of properties that have sold for about what you want to sell property for and more importantly AVOID property being mis-categorized into a lower sale category (remodeled vs partial remodel, move in ready vs. run down, investor special vs. tear down, etc.). Any work required to assure property qualifies for government, traditional or any other types of financing will increase potential buyer pool and increase chances of multiple offers and price increases…
Profit Penalty = Example; if a rental property is missing a range oven in kitchen (because it was stolen or removed because broken) of this type of work is most government backed loans requires
Profit Penalty = The approximate cost or difference between the “As Is” value and “Max Profit Value”
