If you've read previous articles that I discussed the correlations between general investment markets and Real Estate Investing you know two things:
1. The smart money (the ones with super deep pockets) are usually on the right side of the market, when everyone else is head faked on the losing side.
2. The most notable stock market investors ever, including Warren Buffet himself, made their fortunes with a rather simplistic investment methodology - buying assets at 50 cents on dollar (or less) of their intrinsic value, regardless of if the market as whole was bleak or positive.
