    Real Estate in 2020 - Sales Up, Inventory Down! New Homes Coming!

    Real Estate in 2020 - Sales Up, Inventory Down! New Homes Coming!

    The numbers indicate that the home selling season in 2020 is likely to be nuts! The news is not so great for buyers but strong for sellers of single family homes in 2020. With inventory dropping while demand increases, we are looking at a lead in to 2020 where unless we see an uncharacteristic increase in the number of home owners that list their home for sale, the competition for the homes available for sale is going to be fierce!
    One piece of good news is that new home construction has shown a big jump over the last couple of months. While permits are down month to month in the most recent showing, we are still ahead of last year. So at least we will be seeing home builders bringing more single family homes on-line than we have seen at any time in the last 13 years! It still is not likely to be enough, but it might just keep things from going completely nuts!
    Here is a link to a great graph that will let you explore the home building trends over the years. To give you a feeling for what the numbers of done over the last 25 years, here is that graph.
    Take a look at that jump for the most recent months. That is a dramatic increase that gets us to just about where we were in 2007!
    For all that and more, check out todays podcast!

    Where will real estate prices go in 2020?

    Where will real estate prices go in 2020?

    Welcome to 2020 as we discuss where single family residential real estate prices might just go! Today we will chat about what the folks over at Calculated Risk expect to happen in 2020! Expectations for prices on single family residential homes across the country is that we will see nothing shocking. No great gains in the increase in prices but no general loss in value. We will also take a look back at some interesting information on what has happened with rental prices over the last few years. For any aspiring landlord, investor or real estate entrepreneur, we will be reviewing some interesting data in where the biggest growth in rents has been happening in terms of property type. We will also take a few minutes to discuss why we are seeing these trends in the rental real estate market.
    The trends continue to show strong markets for investors in real estate that want to acquire properties at a reasonable price that will also provide a reasonable return. Some familiar markets continue to be a big draw and if you are a long time listener, I suspect the markets suggested as the best in growth will not surprise you.

    Complicated houses make bad investments

    Complicated houses make bad investments

    Homes with "special needs" that cannot be made simple can be poor investments. Welcome to another edition of Real Estate Realities with The RebelBroker! It is time to lay some ground truth on you! Over the last few weeks, I have had to deal with some things that would be a nightmare for any homeowner - and even more so for a landlord! We will talk about that and how some homes, for whatever reason, are just not a good choice for long term renting. Of course, if you overcome that shortcoming with a change, that could actually be a way to get the property for a better price - but some things cannot be changed. We will discuss that a bit.
    We will also reflect a bit on what it takes to take those first steps as an investor.We will be literally talking about square one. Not how much to spend, or where to look for the best investment but how to get your head straight and ready to play the game!

    Some Ranting About Stupid Real Estate Agents

    Some Ranting About Stupid Real Estate Agents

    Well, maybe not JUST ranting, but I really needed it. It was one of those days where I wanted to get into starting our discussion about how to move forward with a good review of the year and setting goals for the coming year. What can I say, I digressed. I have been really poking around for multi unit properties lately and I was stunned by the incompetence I found. So we will chat about that and other things!
    I will also include a clarification regarding my last podcast. During that show, we ran through the numbers on a sample property and I used the wrong number for my calculations. I will take a minute at the end of todays show to give you the low down on the right process and numbers.
