Never too early to start projecting…


#43

10 popular cities with job growth and affordable housing. It’s crazy to see median home price in these places.

Appreciation should be better than national average.


#44

3 cities from Texas :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: surprise that San Marcos is not mentioned, is in between San Antonio and Austin. It is rising very fast and price is more affordable than San Antonio.


#45

Texas is gaining population and businesses. It’s probably the future. Tons of flat land will keep it from getting crazy expensive like the bay area though.


#46

Historical annual appreciation in Austin is between 2.5-4.5%. Since 2012, temporarily pump to 7-13%. Other than those neighborhoods within 20 mins to Apple current and future campuses, prices should cool back to 2.5-4.5%.

After tracking a few different markets around the world I’m about to buy an investment apartment in Andorra.

Prices have historically been linked to immigration, and they are accepting a lot of high net worth people into the country right now, driving prices up even further.

The market had a good year in 2018 (Andorra’s Property Market | Andorra Guides) but I’m betting with more and more wealthy French, Spanish, Brits and Americans fleeing to borderline tax havens that it will be a bigger 2019.

Is anyone else looking at options abroad? Montenegro is next on my list.

.

Are there that many borrowers with mortgage rate lower than current rate?


#50

I believe I have current loans with lower rates than current:

Primary: 2.5% fixed, 15 year conforming; no cost
Most Recent 1031 Investment Buy In 2018: 3.875%; 7 yr fixed (500k?); no cost
Fremont Investment: 3.75% 30 yr conforming; no cost

Thank you, Tracie!!!

Ok, buy, buy, buy…


#52

San Diego is the only desirable place on that list


#53

Don’t you differentiate on where you would want to live vs good (low end) places for rental action? You know a thing or two about making money in RE…


#54

I am sticking with RE close by. Want diversity in location get a REIT


#55

Top overseas markets for 2019…


#56

I don’t know, it could change on a dime…


#57

“Zillow forecasts a median home value spike of 5.2 percent in 2019 for Seattle”

That’s hardly gloom and doom. 15%+ yr/yr isn’t sustainable and would leave to a massive bubble and highly volatile future.
