What is Real Estate?
Real estate is one of the oldest businesses in mankind. The desire for men and women to own a home is as rooted to the human desire for shelter as it is for acquiring wealth. A house provides protection from the elements and security. Furthermore, property ownership is also a cultural sign of wealth and class. The financially ambitious view owning property as an investment opportunity capable of creating wealth for generations to come.
WealthHunters’ Real Estate Definition
Current Real Estate Market
After the housing market bottomed out in 2012, resulting from a housing market crash spurred by The Great Recession of 2008, housing prices appreciated tremendously in value. In fact, many financial experts suspect we are in the middle of a real estate bubble. If this happened to be the case, we could see the value of homes drop tremendously in the near future.
Historically speaking, property values are directly connected to the overall health of the economy. Our current housing market has a shortage of homes for sale at an affordable price. The primary reason for such few homes on the market is a strong economy. Unemployment is at its lowest rate in 20 years and lending standards have become more relaxed. Thus, more American families are able to purchase a home on paper. On top of that, the current housing market has been supported by foreign investment. Wealthy foreigners have purchased thousands of United States’ homes- many in all cash. The combination of a strong United States’ economy and increased foreign investment has driven property prices higher than before The Great Recession.
In fact, many economic experts suspect we are currently in a real estate bubble, not just nationally, but also globally. As stated in Bloomberg, housing prices are falling in some of the wealthiest cities in the world- Toronto, New York, Sydney, Beijing and London to name a few. Many wealthy individuals have purchased homes in multiple countries. Therefore, a sharp decline in one nation’s housing market could lead to a global housing market recession.
How to Make Money in Real Estate in 2018
Purchasing an investment property is a great way to generate wealth under suitable market conditions. Despite a strong economy, this may be the worst time to purchase a home within the last eight years. Imagine purchasing a home right before it loses 30% of its value! Not to mention, that when the housing market does slip into a recession, that is precisely the time you need cash!
Since it’s not a good time to purchase a house in the United States, or seemingly in markets worldwide, let’s uncover how to make money in real estate in 2018.
- Wait and hold onto your money until the housing market goes into a recession.
- Remain patient, hold onto your money, and invest it when real estate prices have dropped!
- Short real estate related stocks, index funds, and ETF’s in the United States and other markets with high real estate asset prices.
- Ask a stockbroker or financial advisor how you can make money by betting the housing market prices will go down.
It may still be wise to purchase a property if you get an incredible discount and have the extra savings to sustain a recession. If you purchase an investment property whose incoming cash-flow is enough to cover the mortgage, and the property is located in a developing area with high employment and low vacancy- it still may be a good time to buy. However, it’s difficult to find such a deal in our current real estate market. Our suggestion- hang tight if you can, but if you find a great deal on a home you’re absolutely in love with, go for it!
