Time Series Analysis of a REIT Portfolio

Article | March 8, 2020

Financial modeling is a technical application as old as finance itself. Traditionally performed through excel sheets and various DCF models, I wanted to set out and use Machine Learning to build a predictive model for the movement of an asset’s price. Within a two week project time period, I set out to analyze and build predictive SARIMAX (Seasonal Auto-Regressive Integrated Moving Average with Exogeneity) models to capture the movement of eight different Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Before we get into the data, it is essential to first understand the nature of a REIT. REITs are just like any other financial asset in that ownership represents a “share” of a companies profit. These companies own and operate income-producing real estate and are usually centric to a particular sector of real estate type (data centers, retail properties, Senior/Assisted living communities, healthcare, etc…). There are two main types of REITS:

The Four Pillars of Real Estate Investing

Article | March 11, 2020

When it comes to investment strategy, why is it that real estate is consistently the preferred investment method of Americans? The reality is that the benefits of investing in real estate far exceed the obvious expectations. When responsible real estate investors commit to thorough due diligence, there are very few strategies with a more powerful impact when it comes to generating wealth. The scope of this discussion will be long-term buy-and-hold strategies rather than some of the more short-term types of real estate investment. These investments are more suited to beginners because there is a lower knowledge barrier to overcome and it is optimal for providing benefits that compound over time. These factors together form a potent combination for generating wealth and ultimately accelerating your path to financial independence. So, what makes real estate so powerful? Real estate is far more versatile an asset than it seems on the surface. Your average person understands that buying a home is a wise move simply because its value is very likely to appreciate over time. While this may be true in many cases, it’s only one very small piece of the puzzle. In fact, there are four main pillars of wealth generation that make real estate such an appealing asset class.

How Will the Role of Real Estate Agents Change in 20 Years?

Article | March 9, 2020

Real estate is changing. Between iBuyers, new technologies, and the instant gratification economy, the traditional real estate industry of slow-moving mechanics and inefficiencies isn’t going to survive unless something changes, and fast. We’re already seeing companies like Carvana removing the necessity for someone to go to a salesman or car dealership to purchase a vehicle. So, why couldn’t Zillow or another major player do this with real estate? But most importantly, how could these changes affect the job market for the 1.3 million real estate agents in the United States? This isn’t a common belief but it’s certainly an interesting idea. When companies within an industry or even massive empires throughout history are faced with adversity and conflict, one of their first instincts is to centralize and consolidate their power. They need to control their fate and the only way to do that is by taking charge and directing its employees and assets to overcome the competition. As we know, real estate agents operate as 1099 independent contractors. They simply “hang their license” under a brokerage. At the end of the day, it’s their own individual business.

WHAT IS REAL ESTATE SYNDICATION AND HOW TO START ONE?

Article | March 3, 2020

Real estate syndication, also referred to as real estate crowdfunding, is an investment model where multiple real estate investors pool their capital for the common objective of financing a property investment. This way, real estate investors can invest in real estate projects that are considerably larger than they could have afforded as individual investors. Real estate syndications are usually led by a sponsor (or syndicate) who oversees the financing, acquisition, and management of investment properties on behalf of the investors. Therefore, the success of a real estate syndication will greatly depend on how competent the sponsor is. They earn active income through rental property management fees. They may also provide a small portion of the investment capital.
