Is A Duplex A Better Option Than A Single Family Home?

PLUS: More Automation Stories That Will Effect Employment

Several small stories to cover today. Some interesting news on the automation front regarding trucking – something we have touched on before. However, with recent bills being passed to dramatically increase the minimum wage, we are seeing more automation being brought into jobs with the lowest skill levels. We will talk about some of those and see if we can come to any conclusions on how that will effect the employment landscape moving forward. Remember, the best way to solve real estate is to have strong employment!

We all like to think about new ways to reach our goals, right? Well, here is one that I think will help. If you are shopping for a single family home, make sure to include duplexes that will also satisfy your needs. There are plenty of 3 bed/2.5bath duplexes out there that have the same or smaller units as the second accommodation. So what does this do for you? Well, it likely actually SAVES you money! Despite this kind of setup costing you more, the amount of income you generate from the rental will likely offset your mortgage payment to the point that you are paying less than if you bought a stand alone single family residential home!

We will also take a few minutes to talk about an interesting turn in China where they are suffering from their own version of the subprime lending disaster.

Relief In Sight For Underwater Homeowners?

Plus, Are US Tax Policies Keeping Money OUT Of The Country?

Real-Estate-Realities-Podcast-Logo-80We have had another year where an increasing number of homes have managed to come out from being under water. There are still a few areas that are lagging behind, but a great deal of progress has been made. So what will it mean for the real estate market as more and more owners find that their homes are now worth what they paid for them? Or perhaps are at least worth more than they owe on them? Since so many homeowners have felt locked into homes that would cost them money if they sold it, are they more likely to sell when the value increases? In todays show we will explore the progress being made in terms of homes regaining their value and see if we can’t figure out the likely effect this might have on markets over the next year. This is great information that will benefit any buyer, seller, investor or real estate entrepreneur out there!

We are also seeing a record number of citizens renouncing their citizenship. The increase over the past three years has been amazing. Is this a symptom of a policy that generally keeps us from seeing money brought back into the United States?

Framing lumber prices are down. Should we be worried that homebuilders have lost confidence in building? Is there some other way to explain this drop in lumber costs?
