Existing home sales may be up, but the reason is up for debate

home salesExisting home sales took a big jump in January, but I am going to offer an alternate explanation than what the press seems convinced of. Plus, we can also talk about mortgage applications – since that is one way to tell the future a little bit in terms of sales over the next month or so.

All cash deals have increased. We will discuss that a bit. We will also review some investment advice I gave out back when all the talk was about the Olympics and the opportunities presented by that.

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.
