Material Shortages Causing Housing Problems – Real Estate Market Update

Article | April 7, 2021

Spring is here, and with it comes home buying season. If you’re in real estate, it’s about to get really interesting. There are also some unique challenges you and your buyers might be confronting in the market now. Let’s get to what you need to know. The housing market has been red-hot for quite a while now. Sales for both new and existing homes have been on an absolute tear. But last month, both of these metrics took a step back. One likely reason for this is no doubt a moderate increase in mortgage rates. However, it seems to me we talk about that enough. Today, we would like to spotlight another factor causing issues in the housing market and possibly even delaying construction of homes in some areas. There’s a real shortage of the necessary materials for constructing and renovating homes at this point. According to a December report from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 71% of builders were facing a shortage of at least one material. That means the houses that were being built in December that may just be getting ready to come on the market now may either be delayed or come with higher prices. The material most in demand was lumber, with 31% of contractors experiencing a shortage.

8 Ways to Vet a CPA for Your Real Estate Investing Business

Article | April 7, 2021

Even though it may sound like a simple undertaking, vetting a good certified public accountant for your real estate investing business takes a lot of research and effort. The best certified public accountant (CPA) advice for investors usually comes from one who either invests themselves in real estate (RE) or has many clients who do. These types of CPAs may also hold certified financial planning (CFP) certifications. Although most CPAs are knowledgeable about taxes in general and can sometimes assist investors in getting the most tax advantages for their real estate investments, CPAs who invest in RE themselves do have a great advantage in firsthand knowledge of investing.

Is Commute Time Becoming a Housing Factor?

Article | April 7, 2021

While many workers plan, at least according to recent surveys, to continue spending at least part of each week working from home, a shorter commute still seems to be holding increasing appeal. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB ) says its first quarter Home Building Geography Index (HBGI) indicates not only a pandemic driven shift in construction to low density, low cost markets, but a rapid expansion in areas with the shortest commutes. Litic Murali, writing in NAHB's Eye on Housing blog, says workplaces are moving toward hybrid home/office work models which could affect 30 to 40 percent of the American workforce. This will give renters and buyers increased market power over their travel times and the ability to reduce both housing and transportation costs. The nationwide average commute is 26 minutes. Those counties in the bottom quintile (lowest 20 percent) have a commute time of 18 minutes or less while the commute in the highest quintile is 28 minutes. The data show that 36.2 percent of the U.S. population resides in the counties in that top slice. The HBGI indicates that the top two quintiles with the longest commutes together had 63.6 percent of single family building. However, growth was strongest in that bottom quintile with a four-quarter moving average annual growth of 22.2 percent.

THE BEST WAYS TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE

Article | April 7, 2021

In short, in the case of real estate investment, the goal is to put money into work today and let it increase so you have more money in the future. The profits or “returns” you make on your real estate investments should be sufficient to cover the risk you take, the taxes you pay, and the cost of owning real estate investments such as utilities, regular maintenance, and insurance. Real estate investing can really be as conceptually simple as playing monopoly when you understand the basic factors of investment, finances, and risk. To win, you buy property, avoid bankruptcy, and generate rent so you can buy even more property. However, remember that “simple” does not mean “easy”. If you make a mistake, the consequences can range from minor inconveniences to major disasters. You may even find yourself abrupt or worse.
