    I don't think the stimulus checks have much effect on this. As long as interest rates are so low that money is essentially free, the bubble won't pop. Rates will be kept low by the govt until the economy recovers, or external inflationary pressures force them up.

    Like I said before, timeline's just a guess. I'm probably wrong about timing and the sequence of events. If I could prefect the future as accurately as I suggested above, I'd be rolling around on a Scrooge McDuck-like pile of gold instead of posting here. :)

    I have a few commercial real estate buddies and been picking their brain a bit. They’re on a little quicker timeline but everything you’ve stated is basically what they’re saying. When I’m referencing stimulus it isn’t so much about a 1400 check but more about the other parts to the package like unemployment and keeping rates low etc as you stated.

    it’s a wild time right now with everything going on. I missed on the 2008 bubble and don’t want to miss this one.

    They're historically low right now.
    And you know what they say about history.

    yeah i've seen 2 distinct turns when banks couldn't give away the foreclosures both in residential and commercial
    i've been extremely fortunate to have that combination of hard work and timing they call luck
    i know i never allowed myself to sell at the bottom but never captured the top either
    i think its a mistake to even try to do that
    you can witness everything going on and make an educated guess but anyone that says they know for sure whats about to happen is a fool
    printing money like mad, real estate and the market at all time highs
    massive unemployment and people unable to pay bills as well as business being shuttered by the millions
    what could go wrong?

    How long have they been historically low?
    Right now has been a historically long time.
    History is for fools.
    Speculating for gold.
    But saving silver.
    Just because you see a fool miss his mark.
    It don't meant you know what he was aiming for.

    Listen all y'all.
    Im telling y'all

    About 6-9 months.
    And they're already rising from those lows.

    Newsom made his most direct comments yet about the push to unseat him during an interview Friday with KQED, saying his opponents are taking aim at his his broader progressive policy agenda.

    “It’s about immigration. It’s about our health care policies. It’s about our criminal justice reform. It’s about the diversity of the state. It’s about our clean air, clean water programs, meeting our environmental strategies,” he told the San Francisco news station.

    Yeah, sure. It's about people who hAte dIVersIty and cLeAn aiR

    Rising sure.
    Just like before that 6-9 month period rates were historically low but rising.
    We can go back with rates for years and that song don't change.
    All they got to rise is a sliver of a percentage point for the report to be able to say rise and everyone be placated that it's rising.
    Rates have been dirt for a long long time.
    Real estate is the dirt business.
    There's no money in dirt.
    Unless it's manna land.
    With a krypto counter on it.
    They pay dividends every round.
    Like manna from heaven.
    Or daily bread.
    Anything other than that is just dirt.
    For a long nap.

    first part salient
    second not so much
    real estate is, and has always been the best investment the common man can make
    forever a question of timing
    and i'd be lying if i said i wasn't frightened by the lights on that freight train screaming down the tracks
    big money consuming land sight unseen is something to pay attn to

    Just because you read somewhere that there's no money in dirt doesn't mean anyone ever said that.
    Repeating a text without context is a pretext.
    Which means you stopped listening to what you were reading when you saw a sentence that reinforced the believes you already hold.
    Because so much of the world's dirt is a manna land and that was the boss of the shield you didn't feel bump up to you.d

    Dirt is a lot like card games.
    Like card games you play for fancy printed paper stock of a variety of thickness and price.
    And you win all kinds of cards.
    Because while the push is to move everything digitally you still need certain papers please.
    And it's a lot more fun to play for your titles, deeds, and degrees than it is to just buy them like some Yankee banker at the card sharp store.
    Living a Dodger is easy with eyes closed.
    But when you down in the ravine you better keep eur aye open before the captain brings you your whine.
    He doesn't charge if you pay attention.
    But if you aren't looking he will take your ass.

    If some paragraphs seem salient and others do not it is only because you have been feed a diet full of too much soylent.
    And that makes your eyes shallow and green when they should be narrow and mean.

    Focus.
    Teenagers with little to nothing making money left and right with their moms credit card and their minimum wage paycheck.
    Y'all have had money for years but you still betting on a tide that goes up and down like card counters in Vegas who don't know they being watched by coolers everywhere ready to stop your hot streak if you ever guess right.
    Kids do a million things an hour.
    We think they don't focus.
    But that's our age defeating us.
    Because we can't stop doing what we were taught is right.
    Because we know.
    And they don't know.
    But here's the rub.
    They don't care.
    And CARE is the cult.
    That takes even the elect of us.
    If nobody loves us enough to pull us away.
    When they pulling you back in.
    Get out.

    At least that much.
    Maybe more depending on the market.
    Then I can give myself a title, like Master of Coin.

    I don't know what this means.
    Which probably means something too.

    Prof. Corey is explained pretty well in the clip above...Michael Corleone famously said the " every time I try get out- they pull me back in" in Godfather III.
    It was aso imitated on the Sopranos, by Big Pussy or Sylvio I think. Or maybe Ralphie.
    Actually, it means something else, to a degree.
    That I'm old.
