"Beginning to remind me of the housing bubble

 

when the outside money starts flowing in at a rapid clip, you have to question whether the current level of returns (rent plus capital appreciation) are sustainable .....after all, that is what those investors are banking on ..

 

we just went through a 10 year period of time where farmland ownership compared quite favorably to many other investments, including equities if measured against a variety of common index products.

 

well......maybe this time it's different

 

I remember back in the late fall of 2008 and wondering about the previous may/june time period----how was it I could not comprehend that we were in a bubble of immense proportions??

 

Good luck to us all!
