Richard Josephberg: How to Identify a Strong Real Estate Market

Home Builder with Almorli Advisors

If you’re thinking about investing in real estate, it’s probably the biggest financial move you’ll ever have to make. Before rushing out to buy real estate, you need to stop and consider what makes a real estate market strong. Here, Richard Josephberg, Almorli Advisors founder, lists some of the primary factors that can affect a strong real estate market.

Some of you may not know this, but the strongest real estate markets aren’t always in the most popular cities. In fact, when it comes to real estate investing, a strong real estate market can be defined by the following factors:

  •          Job Growth
  •          Population Growth
  •          Rental Demand
  •          City Revitalization

These factors should add up to an ideal real estate market in which the demand for homes is strong.

With so many great markets out there to choose from, it’s critical to know which one best meets your financial goals, which market will turn a solid profit in today’s market, and which ones look promising for the future. So, before you can identify a great real estate market, you have to recognize its features. As the CEO of Almorli Advisors, Joesphberg stresses out that understanding the key factors that drive the real estate market is essential to performing a comprehensive evaluation of a potential investment.

A little bit of knowledge on the current state of the real estate market is a must, says, the real estate expert, Josephberg. Understanding the real estate market makes you a more empowered buyer or seller. That means you need to keep up to date with hot trends. Knowing the key trends and issues shaping the real estate markets will give you the leverage you need to make a confident, smart decision, when investing in real estate.

For example, Richard adds, as more and more baby boomers retire and move to warmer year-round climate, the Florida rental market looks quit promising. In fact, most of Florida’s major real estate markets are performing remarkably well. Lured by the warm weather, the city's new housing developments, and reasonable prices, a lot of students are also moving here to attend area schools. This makes Florida a great real estate location.

Good morning, Richard - there are definitely "opportunities"  outside those that are traditionally recognized. Understanding trends and knowing market stats can provide greater insight often leading to better results.

Richard, I love to listen to local economists and how they identify a strong market, and what their predictions are.  Great post.
