As I thanked Rich for 14 years of keeping this site going, it brought me back to my first encounter with Piggington.
I had bought an off-market house as a rental property in Clairemont from my neighbors for about $400K in mid 2004.
After almost a year of renting it out I noticed housing prices were going up and decided to raise the rent. The tenant was a reasonable person and pointed out that their rent was no lower than what was normal.
So I went online to check it out. Somehow I stumbled across Rich's articles and his very new blog and started reading. After about a week I decided it was time to turn the rental property into a flip. I sold it at the absolute peak of the market in late August of 2005 for $575,000.
The charts, graphs and insight here guided me in my search for a Carmel Valley home, which we never bought. Instead, we bought a tiny house on a huge lot, scraped it and built a new one. The agent who helped us land this incredible piece of property - met him on Piggington.
What has Piggington done for you in the last 14 years ?
