Investing in a condo might not be the best way to go

investing in a condoThe folks at biggerpockets published an article about the downsides of investing in a condo. We are going to review those, plus expand that list with some of the rebelbrokers experiences in the area. Does this mean you should never invest in a condo? No, but as a guy who owns an investment condo, you REALLY need to do your homework. A poor choice or not enough due diligence in this scenario can cast you more than you can imagine.

We will also take a few minutes to chat about peak rent and how the increase in available apartments could impact your property for rent, no matter what type it is.

Finally, we will also cover another article that makes an interesting point about housing costs.

3 Things folks at BiggerPockets say you should be aware of with the lease option

lease optionI am a fan of the lease option. It can be a great way to dodge the sellers market crush of buyers and get yourself into a property without having to come up with tons of money right up front. I like using it when I can and for many buyers out there, it is a great tool to know how to use. However, it does have a few items worth knowing about that could throw a wrench into the work. We are going to chat about those and how to be ready for them… if you can.

Lets talk data and what it means to the real estate market.

real estate marketAn interesting series of articles caught my eye over the last week. They all seem to feed into one another and they could spell some big challenges for the real estate market.

We will be chatting about mortgage delinquencies, inflation, price indexes and over all debt and what that might mean for the real estate market. The worry is that we are creating a very challenging environment for people that kind of reminds me of the situation we created last time things went nuts.

San Francisco is going to tax properties in the city to pay for junior college

free collegeThe city of San Francisco has created a new transfer tax that will be used (very partially) to pay for junior college tuition – for anyone – well, anyone that has lived in the city for at least 1 year.

While we can debate whether or not the government taking money from one group and giving it to another to provide a free college education on some other occasion, what we are most interested today is what this will likely do to the real estate market in San Francisco.

When buying vacant land, due diligence is the key!

buying vacant landUSNews published an article recently about the most important Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to buying vacant land. We are going to run down that list and expand on what they have to say. In fact, we will even completely disagree with one of their points and suggest a path for success.

We are also going to quickly discuss the disconnect we are currently seeing between what sellers believe their home to be worth and what appraisers are saying. Then we chat about mortgage rates and we will break down what you should be thinking about as we try to anticipate changes in the mortgage rates before they happen.
