The real estate market is insanely HOT right now, for many reasons:
- Loan rates are deliciously low.
- The powers that be continue devaluing the dollar by printing trillions.
- Buying fixed assets like real estate is a powerful way to hedge against inflation.
The tricky part is not getting caught up in the bidding wars and over paying during this all-time peak. It’s possible, but buying unicorn deals is tough right now.
Personally, I’m spending most of my time working with brokers to source off-market, pocket listings and reaching out to longtime building owners via direct mail. (At the moment I have 5 offers outstanding on value-add commercial real estate.)
I’m also continuously balancing the amount, and size of deals in pipeline with investor demand (the cash or retirement funds that friends, colleagues, and I have to deploy into cash-flowing buildings).
I’m as optimistic as ever been about investing in real estate right now, we just want to stay disciplined and make our money on the buy.
