Should I buy real estate in 2017?
I often get the question should I buy real estate in 2017?
…….Hi my name is Rod Khleif I’m host of the number one
real estate podcast on iTunes called lifetime cash flow
through real estate investing. I’m also author of the critically
acclaimed book on multi family real estate investing titled
how to create lifetime cash flow through multi family
Real estate values go through cycles. And we’re at the top of
the cycle right now. There will be a contraction in the near
future. In fact Rich dad poor dad author Robert Kiyosaki was
recently quoted in a podcast saying that the contraction is
already started. Additionally…..The acclaimed economist
and best-selling author Harry Dent just came out with a
book titled the sale of a lifetime how the great bubble burst
of 2017 through 2019 can make you rich. And he also states
that the contraction has already started. So you think to
yourself is it really a good time to buy real estate in 2017?
Let’s answer that question…….I’m going to break it down
between buying a home to live in versus buying investment
real estate. So, Let’s start with buying a home to live in.
Well the first thing I would say to you if you’re looking to buy
yourself your first home is that if you’re ever going to be
interested in actually investing in real estate that you should
consider buy a duplex triplex or fourplex. That way when
you move up you’ve already got your first rental property
and if you purchase it right you could live very inexpensively
or even for free in many cases…… with the renters in your
other units paying your mortgage payment. That said,
purchasing a home to live in is a subjective and emotional
purchase. Because there is emotion involved and you need a
place to live those factors come into play. The interest rates
are still incredibly low historically so I would tell you to
weigh the fact that you’ll likely be paying top dollar for the
home……against the fact that you’ve got great low interest
rates. Many people say it’s likely that interest rates will
continue to go up and not reach these low levels again. I’m
not sure I believe that but who knows……..That said, if you
are asking my personal opinion, I would not buy a
single-family home to live in right now because the prices
will likely go down in value enough to justify a slightly higher
interest rate if the rates go up. .
Now I take a different position as it relates to multi family
investment property….

    GREAT ADVICE on the duplex, triplex quad!!!! It works! People don't want have to make the "sacrifice" of living in a duplex etc. Nutty thought process. It works, yes you will be better acquainted with the human experience, but it's worth it.
