Should you sell your home in 2018?

According to the folks at US News, you should sell your home in 2018

sell your home in 2018Today we are going to review an article from US News that advises homeowners to seriously consider the idea of whether or not to sell your home in 2018. They quote some numbers from Zillow and Trulia and offer 4 compelling reasons why you should consider selling your home in 2018. We will cover them all and see how much sense they make.

We will also do a little check up on that Zillow data we talked about the other day. I gave a gut reaction that their data relating to my local markets was off and on todays show, I give you the numbers to show if I was right or wrong.

Zillow picks the top real estate markets for 2018

I don’t think they got the top real estate markets for 2018 right – lets talk about it.

When it comes to good data for investors, it is hard to argue with a big operation like Zillow coming out with the top real estate markets for 2018. Well, we do things a bit different around here and for my money, Zillow has not got it completely right. Well, at least not right for investors. Of course, this is not the first time I have had an issue with Zillows predictions. If I recall correctly, I had similar issues with their top 10 list for 2017. This year, we will review what they have to say and see if we can’t tweak the list to work a little better for investors.

We are also going to check in with the latest market data for Sacramento, CA and get the latest news on automated driving. Automated driving is going to change the world, and as investors, we need to understand it so we can be prepared for it!

Latest debt and net worth numbers for the average family are not good

A change in the flood plain maps could impact your home!

net worthOn todays show we are going to talk about some numbers that paint a picture of a public that is not doing well when compared to past decades in terms of net worth and debt ratios. This is particularly troubling when you consider all the various challenges to the stability of the economy that we are likely to face. You would want the public being better prepared financially for a potentially tough time.  Overall, even if you do not buy into the idea that some tough times may be ahead, these are not encouraging numbers. We will also talk about new flood plain data that would effect tens of millions of property owners who suddenly find their properties in a riskier flood plain than they were before. The insurance costs are something every owner or investor should be aware of.

We will also take a few minutes to review the latest market numbers from Las Vegas, Nevada.
