Just Try and Keep up With Washington DC Area Home Prices

Today I calculated the appreciation of my parents’ home in Potomac, Maryland which is a suburb of Washington DC in Montgomery County, one of the wealthiest counties in the United States.

They sold it for $439,000 on 1/27/1998. Zillow.com says today it is worth $863,654.

The buyers have owned it 19 years, 11 months and 25 days (7,299 days or 239.9669 months).

That means their home has appreciated $1,769.63 a month.

Gerald Celente—2016 Predictions, Gold, Silver War and Collapse

Summary:

Gerald Celente says he isn’t a conspiracy theorist but sticks to the facts: Demand for gold and silver is soaring worldwide while demand for other commodities is falling, the bottom for gold is $1050 an ounce which is the cost to harvest it, people today feel more comfortable investing in precious metals than their countries’ currencies, and the more than 200 trillion worldwide debt bubble will collapse in 2016.

Mr. Celente says to get out of this “they” will lead us to global war, close the banks, devalue the currency and demand citizens turn in their gold as they did in the early 20th century. His solution is three Gs—gold, guns and a getaway plan. His destination after 9/11 was Canada.

In January his Trends Journal will host a getaway retreat in Naples, Florida. See Florida retreat for mind, body and spirit.
