Today’s LA Times article, “Cash-Only Home Sales Rise in California” signals something. That the smart, cash money thinks it’s time to jump in. The discount is there – now is the time to make the investment. Particularly for trophy properties – get ’em for 40% off.

Definitely something to think about…
