Real Estate Investor Tip of the Day! 7-31-14

The Investor market has really fallen off. There are still a few flippers out there, but few (well at least not as many as two years ago) are buying and holding. The returns are not as good.

But the market of two years ago is not coming back. Interest rates are still incredibly low. Many experts think the stock market is in a bubble. Long term Real Estate Investing may be the best option. Your loan is fixed, but rents will head up. Property is a tangible asset that is always there.

 

Five years from now people will look back and wish they had bought real estate now, even though the market is up from 2 years ago.

Hi Gene, it is a great time to invest. There are great deals and borrowing money is still (relatively) cheap. If not now, when? I agree, some folks are going to be kicking themselves in a few years.

Hi Gene,

I also agree.  I wish I had more to invest in real estate.  I see so many wonderful opportunities. I think todays thinking needs to be more along the model of buy and hold rather than buy and flip as fast as you can.
