2016 Predictions for Property and Construction


“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future.”

That quote politely sums up the prediction business from the 1922 Nobel prize in physics winner, Niels Bohr, a Danish quantum physicist. I gave up on the prediction business some time ago, to be precise 2008, after believing in continued demand for Arizona real estate and a ‘worse case’ being a leveling of prices as population growth would remain strong.
Now I think Warren Ellis has a more apt description:
“I try not to get involved in the business of prediction. It’s a quick way to look like an idiot.”
