"The bottom of a real estate downturn is created by investors. Investors know the point at when it makes sense for their money to grow in real estate and create cash flow. I am seeing lots of investors and institutional investors flock to buy up any of the inventory that it left on the market<" said Brian Pitcher, from Pitcher Group Real Estate Experts who released the study. "That tells me that we have seen the bottom or are currently seeing it. That is good news as the housing market will lead the country out of the worst recession that our country has seen since the Great Depression."
