In addition to this, recently the Federal Unemployment Benefit also expired this week and the Biden Administration has no intention of bringing the unemployment benefit back as the economy is starting to open up.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaTUQruQjKQ In this video, I’m going to unpack what this all means and how real estate investors could potentially benefit from the eviction

Commercial Real Estate | Here’s the BAD News and the GOOD

Dave Seymour is the star of the show “Flipping Boston” and he gives us his thoughts and predictions about the commercial real estate market. We get into detail about what parts of commercial real estate are performing and which ones are NOT doing so well. Dave also gives insight into commercial real estate investing for 2021. Dave is an expert in the field of investing in commercial property, especially the multifamily real estate arena. Dave and I get into details of commercial property investments; how leisure, hospitality, retail, and office real estate is hurting and may never recover. But we also get into how other commercial real estate investments are performing very high right now, especially warehouses and apartments! Dave Seymour’s YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyxx6rbT502nMmngzJyMgiA?fbclid=IwAR3GxcnTY6urtU3i0skgPOlz9sGTIYeihJRgvhDcCQGMVWvgey3ALf79rJs Dave’s thoughts on the commercial real estate landscape are very interesting. There are some aspects of commercial real estate that have completely tanked and others have performed very well. So right now everything that was up is now down and everything that is down is now up in the commercial property. Retail commercial real estate has really suffered from the circumstances of 2020 and Dave feels like retail commercial property will continue to suffer into 2021. Office commercial real estate is also suffering, owners of office commercial property are scrambling to find ways to cash flow. BUT, Dave also feels if you can manage to pivot office style commercial real estate, there is some opportunity to recoup some losses. Now as far as hotels & entertainment style of commercial real estate is getting hurt pretty bad because of the 2020 situation. Now, what makes sense for Dave in the commercial real estate space, roof overheads, and that’s where we get into the multifamily and apartment units. There will be an uptick of investors providing affordable, clean housing. Now, what has performed very well in the commercial real estate space during 2020, warehouses and apartments. Warehouses have done very well because so many people have been buying their goods from e-commerce outlets. And in the next 3-6 months, we are really going to start seeing the opportunity to arise in the commercial real estate arena. And we have yet to even scratch the surface when it comes to all the new opportunities in the commercial real estate space. As the single-family market adjusts, Dave suggests taking a look into the commercial real estate space for new opportunities for rookie and seasoned real estate investors. There is a lot of opportunity in the commercial real estate space!

Housing Market: SURPRISING Effects from Elections…

How do elections, specifically presidential elections affect real estate, housing markets, and all things that relate to the real estate market? Well in this video I am going to breakdown EXACTLY what to look out for when it comes to real estate and presidential elections. As we all know during elections, many things could potentially change in the housing market depending on the policies of the candidate. BUT there are 2 main differences when it comes to real estate and presidential elections. When it comes to commercial real estate (stores, warehouses, multi-family units) more of the effect of the local elections has more to do with commercial real estate while presidential elections affect residential real estate. Why is that? Well stay tuned and I’ll be breaking down exactly why real estate and presidential elections affect the housing market! So back to my point earlier on how real estate and presidential elections affect the housing market. The housing market as a whole, meaning real estate, single-family homes, places where people live, are more affected by the presidential election. In comparison to commercial real estate, multi-family units, warehouses, are more affected by local elections. This is because local elections create local laws and tax codes that directly affect their local area. Tenant laws, landlord regulations, zoning, and everything that encompasses commercial real estate, is bound to the local government laws. The net operating income is the number that a commercial real estate property performs in regard to profits. This is a calculation that investors use to see if a commercial real estate property is worth investing in or not. My second point when it comes to real estate and presidential elections is that residential real estate is affected MORE than commercial real estate. For instance, President Trump signed the tax cuts & jobs act of 2017. In a nutshell, you CAN NOT write off over $10k of expenses in a home over $400k. This hurt a certain class of people but homes under this price went lower and we saw some growth in the housing market for those prices of homes, which means people were buying more homes in that price range. Especially in states that have a budget problem. Lastly, in regard to real estate and presidential elections, you will see the prices of homes decrease. This is because of the financial uncertainty in the new president if a new one is elected. So people are less likely to spend, especially in the housing market, without knowing the outcome of said election. And generally, during fall months, prices drop anyway, regardless if it is an election year or not. So now you know how real estate and presidential elections are connected!

Housing Market: CRITICAL Warning & What to Invest NOW

In this video, I bring on a very good friend of mine to give his input about the real estate market right now and what to invest in NOW! Jerome has been in real estate investing for over 20 years and has had a very successful career as a real estate investor. Jerome and I get into the topic of real estate 2020, the real estate market, how commercial real estate is doing, investing for beginners, and what to do RIGHT NOW when it comes to investing in real estate. I also asked Jerome what you should you NOT invest in and what SHOULD you invest in if you are looking to get into real estate investing. Jerome gets into how to navigate the commercial real estate space and how to pivot a commercial real estate investment into a profitable business model in the current real estate market. Jerome also encourages people who are looking to invest in real estate to take an out of the box approach to securing the real estate investment, owner financing, especially with distressed properties can make investing in real estate, especially commercial real estate a lot easier. How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5-7 Years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f-ebCjeH8o 0:00 Intro 0:55 Background of Jerome 6:10 What you should NOT invest in now and what you SHOULD invest in 12:55 What advice would you give someone new to commercial real estate investing 20:30 What is going to happen in the next few months in the real estate market Jerome also warns real estate investors to stay away from the single-family home real estate investments. In the current real estate market and housing market, prices are very high and the inventory of properties is very low. The housing market is over-stimulated right now. He encourages people looking to invest in real estate to avoid the crowd’s direction, turn 180 degrees in the opposite direction when it comes to real estate investing, ESPECIALLY the current real estate market in the housing market sector. Diminish your real estate investments (if they are in the single-family housing market) and put that money back in the back and wait for the opportunity to arise. Now for those who are looking to invest in real estate in the commercial real estate sector, Jerome encourages people looking for warehouses, places to set-up distribution centers for e-commerce. Now with that being said, there are ways to structure the way you rent out commercial real estate spaces to where none of the bills/taxes are tied to you as the owner, only the mortgage. So Jerome had some very good words to say in regards to commercial real estate investing.

Recession 2020: HIDDEN Real Estate Strategies

Real Estate Investing Strategies During A Recession! What should Real Estate Investors expect during Recession 2020? Well, our friend Randy Pertler (30-year real estate investor) stops by and shares his vast knowledge about real estate investing strategies during the Recession 2020. Now, the effects of the Recession 2020, that we are currently in, are not yet known for the housing market, we have yet to see the full effects (it will take some time). During the Recession 2020, the value of properties (residential/commercial properties) will be negatively affected by a recession. The result is an abundance of foreclosures which raises the opportunity for investors to acquire properties from distressed sellers. This may sound like a negative/opportunistic action by the investor, but in reality, real estate investors are actually saving those distressed sellers from foreclosure, it’s a win-win. There will be several opportunities for real estate investors during Recession 2020 to acquire properties. The unfortunate reality of a recession is people will be out of work, which means out of money, and will not be able to pay their mortgage. What does that mean for the investor? Opportunity for short sales, subject-to strategy to help property owners with existing financing, and/or lease with an option to buy. Lease options give a renter a choice to purchase the rented property during or at the end of the rental period. This is a great strategy for people who may have foreclosed or are in pre-foreclosure caused by Recession 2020 and you, as the investor, acquired this property already. Most families have already established themselves in the home, school district, neighborhood, etc…..And maybe do not want to move. You as the investor can give them this option to families affected by Recession 2020. Short sales are when a financially distressed homeowner sells his or her property for less than the amount due on the mortgage. The homeowner is underwater and they can not sell their home for the price they owe. You as the investor can work on the homeowner’s behalf to negotiate with the lender for a price on the home. Typically, banks & lenders do NOT want to go through the foreclosure process because it can cost time and money. ALSO if they have so many foreclosures on their books, The Fed will be less likely to lend to them based on their numbers….another effect of Recession 2020. Recession 2020: An opportunity for investing and helping the unfortunate.
