Are we recreating the 2007 housing bubble?

More data today on how we might be remaking the housing bubble

housing bubbleMore stories today that all seem to relate to one another. They fit together with past topics we have covered that leave me wondering what is going on with how much debt is being willingly and even happily taken on by consumers – and it looks like folks are willing to take on lots more and potentially feed a housing/debt bubble. As I have said before, it feels just a little bit too familiar. So are we resurrecting the housing bubble that kicked us around so horribly in 2007? Sadly, it looks like we might. Lets look at the latest numbers and see where we are.

Alternative Credit Scores – That Ignore Credit

Measuring credit by not measuring it Just when we thought the crazy train could not pick up any more speed – Congress starts pushing the idea that Fannie and Freddie should change the model they use to evaluate the credit worthiness of borrowers. Of course, when you read what you want to do, …

Increase the value of your property with features baby boomers will love

baby boomersWhile millennials have tended to take center stage in terms of who will be the biggest buying group – we need to keep in mind the baby boomers.

Baby boomers continue to be a growing segment of the buying community and in some areas they dominate the market. Knowing the features that will attract the baby boomer buyers will help you market to this growing demographic. However, do you need to do this at the expense of how much millennials will be drawn to your property? In todays show, we are going to look at how we can absolutely appeal to baby boomers without losing ANY of our appeal to other potential buyers. In fact, some of the suggestions in todays show will improve the desirability of your property across the board – if you do it right!

The Fed raised rates

The Fed Raised Rates – PLUS: Millennials are more like the rest of us than the experts thought

fed raised ratesAs expected, the fed raised rates on Wednesday. Not only did we call that here on the show, we also predicted the amount that rates were increased.

I will also share the latest on my own personal real estate dealings from looking for a new place to the recent wrinkle in my plan to sell my current home.

It ends up that, as we explained on this show, Millennials are not that different after all. Recent data shows that buyers are – as they have been – still looking for bigger homes. This data includes Millennials who currently make up the largest portion of buyers.

Also, Amazon has done it again. This time they delivered a package to a real customer with a drone – a first. This is another example of the employment revolution that I expect us to see in the coming years. On the show, we will look at the larger impact of this technology.

Lets try to predict the future a little

From employment to changing property needs

The march towards a new industrial revolution continues. The impact on jobs will have a huge effect on the future of just about everything, including real estate. We will chat about two more stories that just confirm what we have been talking about now for well over a year.

We will also take a look at several interesting stories about millennial buyers. They all dove tail together to give us some interesting insights into how what we should be offering as investors and landlords should change in the future.

The show is now available on iHeartRadio (http://www.iheart.com/show/263-Real-Estate-Realities-With/)! If you you are a fan of iHeart – make sure to check it out! Just do a search on “real estate realities” and the show should come right up!

Talking About Rates

PLUS: The employment revolution

houseingbubble-investwithalexWe will be hitting several topics today. We will take a minute to explore a little more about the relationship between 10 year treasuries and mortgage rates. I like to explore opposing viewpoints, so I will include an articles in todays show notes that kind of does that.

More programs that are designed to create buyers are being celebrated in the media. I am still not sure why there is so much emphasis on feeding this upward house price trend with these tactics – but today we will explore one possibility. If we focused the effort on creating more homes, they problem would solve itself!

We will also get an update on the march of automation into the working world. It is on its way and faster than any of the pundits think it is. I believe it is a revolution that is going to have some very lasting effects to the employment landscape that could be very scary. Of course, anything that messes with employment messes with real estate.

Then we will touch on yet another story that seems to insist on treating millennials as some kind of different beast.

This weeks poll!
