The Fed has issued TRILLIONS of dollars in bonds – now it is backing off

To keep rates low and to get more money flowing out in the banking world, the Fed printed money and issued bonds. They bought the bonds. Yeah, it sounds confusing, but that is how they get the money out there to the banks.

Now, they are planning a very slow reduction of those holdings. It is a good thing, but risky. It will also have an effect on real estate, so lets talk about that!

Real estate lending seems to manage to out do themselves again when it comes to bad lending choices!

real estate lendingThis is not a new topic, but these tidbits are sure new! Two more interesting and less than great lending options have been added to the world of real estate lending. Of course, we just have to add these to the ever growing pile of bad things. The industry has to learn that the problem is not lending – it is inventory.

Bad things happen, lets talk about how to avoid them

There really is no escaping the reality that you need to protect yourself when buying real estate. In todays show, I will discuss some real estate horror stories that could have been prevented with the right strategies. All buyers, sellers, investors and real estate entrepreneurs need to know how to best protect themselves from real estate issues. All across the country, disclosure requirements vary. What you need are ways to protect yourself no matter what those disclosure laws might be. What is truly important is doing everything you can to avoid getting yourself into a situation that would cost you time, money and sanity to resolve. There is good news tho. In the vast majority of cases, a few simple steps can dramatically reduce the chances of these things happening to you. So sit down and take a listen to what I can share about how to avoid the horror stories in todays show!

Can doing a “For Sale By Owner” work for you?

for sale by ownerThere is a pretty standard line that you will get from real estate agents when you suggest that you want to sell your home as a “For Sale By Owner“. Most of what they will say is true to one degree or another, but depending on market conditions and your expertise, you can sell your home by yourself. Today we will talk about an article I found where one agent talks about the “myths” of selling a home yourself and see how they stack up to a little analysis.

More news on negative interest rates. We won’t spend much time talking about it, but I will be linking to a good article on the subject that will give you some good background.

Regulators are clearing the way for autonomous cars – that is cars with NO human driver in them! As we discussed in a previous show, the push is on the fast track these automated cars and the latest news from the folks in Washington back that up.

Also, vacancy rates are at virtually zero in many communities. We are going to talk about that and see if we can make it work for us.
