In this article, I will show you how you can invest AND pay off your mortgage without the diminishing effects of either process. I want to show you that it’s possible to pay off your mortgage and invest simultaneously. More often than not, such a decision often depends on your financial situation.

BREAKING! The Eviction Problem Just Got WORSE 😧

The eviction moratorium has completely expired and the US Supreme Court ruled against the CDC wanting to extend the moratorium. 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

Housing Market… being destroyed by the Stimulus?

Housing Market… With the second stimulus bill moving quickly through the government and it looks like everyone will be getting, at least, $600 check from the stimulus package. But what does the stimulus package mean outside of free money? What does this mean for our economy? And most importantly, how will it affect the housing market? In this video, I will be giving you my take on the whole ordeal and what the future will be looking like for generations to come. Email Us: [email protected] Article: Evictions loom for as many as 20 million Americans who are behind on rent. That’s about the population of Florida. http://businessinsider.com/millions-of-americans-are-behind-on-rent-risk-of-eviction-2020-12#:~:text=Up%20to%2020%20million%20Americans,rent%2C%20risk%20eviction%20-%20Business%20Insider&text=The%20word%20%22Insider%22.&text=A%20leading-edge%20research%20firm%20focused%20on%20digital%20transformation 0:00 Intro 1:05 The cost of the stimulus 3:00 Where does stimulus money come from? 4:10 How does this affect the housing market? 6:43 My initial thoughts on the stimulus 9:33 Data points to my argument 11:32 The Kwak Brothers giveaway With the stimulus looking like it will be signed into law here in the next few days, pending Senate approval, many ask the question, “who’s paying for this?”. Obviously, it’s not President Trump himself, but The Federal Reserve has a lot to do with it, but have you thought about, ourselves? YES! But not you and I, more like, our grandchildren. And the effect of the massive government spending in 2020, will be seen in the Social Security Fund. Many times when the government borrows money for social programs, it literally is being borrowed from the taxpayers without consent. And with the Fed’s balance sheet getting bigger by the month, it’s sitting at almost $7 Trillion dollars, and if this stimulus passes, it’ll add even more! So how is this connected to the real estate market? Well, it takes people to buy homes in the real estate market.

2020 Election Aftermath on Real Estate and Lending

2020 Election Aftermath on Real Estate and Lending In this video, I look over what the aftermath of the 2020 election will look like for either Donald Trump or Joe Biden. Joe Biden has been very open about his tax policies. He is looking to raise the corporate tax and get rid of a lot of tax benefits in the real estate investing world. I can say that Joe Biden’s tax plan, does not look good for business owners. Joe Biden wants to get rid of the step-up basis which would cause a tax on people inheriting property. Currently, there is no tax on inheriting a real estate property. Secondly, Joe Biden would want to do away with 1031 exchanges, which would cause a lot of real estate investors to be taxed on several investments. The issues that Donald Trump would have to deal with the fallout of the pandemic. What will Donald Trump do to recover from the economic issues that the lockdowns have caused? The 2020 election has been a rollercoaster. Now that we are 1 day away from the presidential election 2020, what will the aftermath be if either candidate wins? How much will the taxes be raised under Joe Biden for business owners and real estate investors? How will Donald Trump handle the fallout of the pandemic and get our economy back on track on top of dealing with the expiring eviction moratorium? Time will only tell but what I can tell you is that if Joe Biden is elected, it does not look good for people who are business owners and real estate investors. Joe Biden is looking to get rid of a lot of different programs that currently benefit real estate investors. Joe Biden’s tax plan would also raise corporate taxes. With the abolishment of the 1031 exchange and the step-up basis for selling inherited property, will that deter people from becoming real estate investors? Joe Biden’s tax plan may look good to those people who work a regular 9-5 job and I am not saying that I want the W2 workers in the country to not benefit from his tax plans, I am just curious to what the ramifications of Joe Biden’s tax policies. Will it hurt the housing market and the economy? Will there be affordable housing for those W2 workers that are provided by real estate investors? On the flip side, we have already seen what Donald Trump’s tax policies have done for the past 4 years, but he has a whole other set of problems to deal with. Like getting the economy kickstarted, but how can Donald Trump do that safely? This is an issue that both presidential candidates will have to deal with, but it’s more of an uphill battle for Donald Trump because he is actively pushing to get the economy going again and coming up with a solution for the housing crisis for both tenants and landlords. It should be an interesting few days with the election tomorrow. Stick around for more updates and thanks for watching!

Housing Market Update: What happens if Joe Biden Wins?

What would happen to the housing market if Joe Biden wins the 2020 presidential election? Well in this video I break down a few things that Joe Biden would do if he were to win the 2020 presidential election. Now I recently made a video talking about what happens to the housing market during presidential elections. You can find that video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BscbOjM9gY&t=209s. But in this video I am going to break down what a housing market will look like under a Joe Biden presidency. I am going to break down how Joe Biden’s tax plan will influence real estate prices, real estate taxes, and what will happen to those who inherit your home eventually and what that will look like. So I know that I have been talking about a housing market crash in all of these videos I have been producing lately. Well, I still feel like this will happen BUT there is a difference between a Donald Trump Presidency and a Joe Biden Presidency during the housing market crash in 2021. BUT remember the President does NOT have as much influence over the housing market as many believe. And even if the President uses his executive powers to implement something in the housing market, it would still take a significant amount of time to see the effects of it, in the housing market. With that being said, there is ONE major thing that will influence the housing market, indefinitely, and that is tax policies of both candidates. As far as Joe Biden’s tax policies, you will not likely see a huge change for people who are non-investors, BUT the one’s who will be effected the most are the real estate investors. The first of those policies is the reversal of the step-up and that will effect the capital gains tax…..significantly. Currently the capital gains tax is maxed out at 25%.

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!
