Real Estate – Buy Low and Sell High

There are always stories of smart investors who take advantage of the downturns in real estate cycles, downturns in the stock markets, or overall downturns in the economy. While some people ‘hunker down’ or even panic during the difficult periods, others look for opportunities, or specifically wait for the opportunity cycle to come, as it has now.
While one of the mantras of investing is to ‘Buy Low-Sell High’, this doesn’t always work out, does it? What we inevitably see is this: when something is ‘hot’ (like home rentals or condos recently), everyone rushes in to buy, but when it drops or freezes up, everyone panics and sells (or tries to sell). Often we ‘Buy High – Sell Low’, and that is a pity. Of course, when it comes to the realty world, an added culprit has been financing. Some investors over-financed, or when everything else in their portfolio and …

Transit Oriented Real Estate Investment

One of the few bright spots in the world of real estate investment these days is transit oriented investing. Transit oriented real estate refers to properties located along light rail, bus, subway, streetcar, commuter rail and other transit lines.
These properties are becoming more valuable because more Americans are using transit largely because rising gas prices are encouraging people to look for alternatives to the car. Since experts predict that both gas prices and transit use will increase in coming years, investing in real estate along transit lines is probably a good idea.
Examples of the increase in values of properties on transit lines abound. In Kenosha, Wisconsin, a streetcar line attracted $300 million worth of new development. A similar streetcar line in Portland, Oregon, led to $2 billion worth of new development. This means that people who buy real estate along proposed or new transit lines could be in …

Bottom line, do not offer a great deal additional for good scenery, unless it’s that ocean-side view or even an amazing landscape.
