Welcome to AHB! As one of the authors of this site, I’d like to take the opportunity and briefly introduce myself.
I am a full-time analyst for a real estate development firm. My duties involve evaluating real estate acquisitions, studying market trends and determining the profitability of these investments. We routinely work with public builders and financial institutions so hopefully some of that knowledge trickles its way down to this blog. Through my work, I have witnessed first hand the unfolding of our nation’s housing and credit crisis and it has been ugly.
I rent within the San Gabriel Valley and very much hope to purchase a home in Arcadia one day. Although you may find us very critical of certain aspects in the city, Arcadia is still a very desirable place to live. It’s central location, good schools, beautiful homes and proximity to a variety of dining choices and entertainment are the major reasons why I want to buy here.
SavedbyGrace and I started this blog to analyze the state of our local housing market and share this information with all future and current homeowners out there. Although I believe that everyone should strive for a piece of the American Dream; risky financing, unmanageable debt and reckless financial decisions is not the way to attain it.
I hope for Arcadia Housing Blog to grow into a community where we can share ideas, provide advice to home buyers and accurately document local housing trends
Welcome to AHB. We look forward to hearing from you!
