Real Estate Investing and Financial Literacy

Article | March 2, 2020

Taking financial literacy into consideration will assist in forming a clear understanding of personal finance, how to plan for the future, and to achieve one’s financial goals. While such knowledge could be conveyed in high school, or earlier, it seldom is. For those who wish to invest in real estate, being financially literate is crucial in being a successful investor. This often results in leaving people who lack the necasarry knowledge with the belief that they are incapable of qualifying for a home loan. The key is gaining an education in real estate. A homebuyer or investor who skips doing their homework can end up facing a costly situation that can result in further financial hardship.

Article | April 9, 2020

It’s a specifically challenging time for the commercial real estate industry.

Top 5 Trends Affecting Real Estate in 2020

Article | February 19, 2020

Any buyer that’s been looking for a home can tell you how difficult it is right now to find a home in their price range. Several factors contribute to this trend. Baby boomers are staying in their homes longer, and we have tons of millenials looking for their first or second home. So we have lots of demand, but not enough supply. This is great for sellers, but buyers want to be prepared for it to take several months to find the right property for the right price. Another reason we are seeing such an influx of buyers is because interest rates are staying very low, making it incredibly affordable to obtain a mortgage. As of writing this, a 30 year fixed rate mortgage has an interest rate of 3.62%, and 15 year fixed rate mortgage has an interest rate 2.87%!
