Time for a buyers real estate market?

Trends are pointing to a shift in the real estate market.

buyers real estate marketAs I like to do at times, we will review some ground truth that I am seeing my local market place. We have talked a bit about how I am sensing a pivot point in the market. I am seeing very interesting trends in active listings. We will compare that with some of the national stories we have discussed that also point to a shift in the market – more towards a buyers real estate market.

Next we will discuss the best and worst investment real estate markets out there and see which ones sound like good opportunities – even the worst ones!

12 Suggestions for Buyers from a millennial

PLUS: Post Olympics property investment?

An interesting article was posted over at lifehacker the gives some eye opening insights into what a millennial thinks about buying real estate. It contradicts some of what we have been told millennials are looking for but also gives some good suggestions that we will review in todays show.

We will also take a few minutes to discuss overcoming the fear relating to moving forward with your goals in real estate. We can talk about numbers and research all we want, but we also have to overcome whatever emotional thing we each face that is getting in our way. I share what I think mine was and how I handled it.

Some have suggested that there could be some great deals on real estate in Rio after the olympics. I don’t think it is quite that simple and we will discuss this subject.

Stupid Explanations

PLUS: Pros and Cons of Single Family homes vs. Apartments for investing

We are still hearing stories about how we really need to step up and get more folks into a position where they can buy. We will pick out a new one today that not only assumes that we need to create buyers, but also suggests what may be the dumbest reason yet for why millennials have not become buyers.

We will also talk about the pros and cons of investing in single family homes vs. multi-unit housing. Then we will top that off with the top 5 places for buying single family homes.

Why are we trying to create more buyers?

PLUS: Paying Rent On Minimum Wage

Both Chase and Wells Fargo have announced that they will be doing 3% loans – in cooperation with Fannie Mae. The bottom line is that these are moves to create more buyers in a market where there is already too little inventory. Does this sound at all familiar? Well, think back to 2000-2005 when through subprime lending, more buyers were being created in a market that already had too many buyers. The results are something we are all familiar with. How this comparison escapes the experts at the big banks and Fannie Mae is a mystery to me.

There is also an article out that declares that if you are earning minimum wage, you cannot afford the rent of a two bedroom apartment. I have news for you, when I earned minimum wage, I was NEVER able to afford ANY apartment on my income. That is why there are room mates.  In my first two bedroom apartment, I had three room mates. How is this news? Honestly, it feels like a more political attempt to have people assume that a minimum wage should equal a living wage. We will take some time to chat about that.

Finally, pending sales reach their highest point since the downturn, we will take a look at that and see if there is anything more interesting to learn from this info.
