The 4th annual Real Estate Investment Expo Silicon Valley is being held September 8, 2012 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

“For people new to real estate investing, education from reputable professionals is critical. Real estate investing can be as unforgiving as it is rewarding.” said Bruce Norris, real estate market timing expert and president of The Norris Group. “Networking with real estate investors who’ve been in the game a long time and attending educational forums, like Expo Silicon Valley, is the best way to make sound, profitable decisions.”
The long slump in real estate prices makes this investment a buyer’s market. People who have been waiting on the sidelines for the market to bottom out are now ready to make the move into real estate. At the same time, many who’ve made their wealth in high-tech stocks are looking to diversify their investment portfolio to include property holdings.
To serve these investors, SJREI Association is hosting Real Estate Expo Silicon Valley.

That, plus the quality of organizations involved with REI Expo Silicon Valley, is the reason RealWealth Network is proud to sponsor the Expo.”
Silicon Valley and the greater bay area is home to 2.6 million households within a 1 hour drive of the Expo, yet Geraldine Barry, President of SJREI Association, expects participants from across the country.
“I’ve been to multiple industry events that purport to be educational in nature, yet lack content while pressing participants to spend even more money on training,” said Ms. Barry. “Real estate education is often associated with get rich quick schemes.
