Real Realtors 022 | Daniel Ripper and Eric Wong

Every day in the Bay Area you see another story talking about the Bay Area Housing Crisis. We have had plenty of discussions on Real Realtors about whether or not there is indeed a crisis. Today, we look at some factors that could be contributing to it, such as traffic, prices, availability, or mother nature. Our panel today is Eric Wong of Winkler Real Estate and Daniel Ripper of Climb Real Estate, and we will pick their brains for what they think is contributing to the current housing climate in the Bay Area.
