Avoiding Capital Disintegration! Modest, simple approach to putting your capital back to work now!
As kids we made up games… We made up the rules We never stopped changing the rules. We changed them whenever wanted. We adapted to the new rules easily
The rules have changed… It is not like it “used to be”. We didn‟t change the rules. We used to be able to adapt. We must adapt again.
Is your money working for you? Interest rates on IRAs/CDs at 50 year lows. The Fed won‟t raise interest rates till 2013 Stock market is very volatile. New/existing home sales at record prices.
What do we know is coming… Higher taxes. Inflation increasing. Families merging households. Higher health insurance premiums.
American dream decimated… Too many foreclosed homes. Vacant neighborhoods More foreclosures in the pipeline. Years before we are able to work through these foreclosures.
Recovery looking pretty dim… No new jobs being created. People stopped investing. Taxes are stifling growth. Regulations are hampering expansions.
Most things are out of our control… National press focuses on the negatives. Over reaction by tightening regulations. Over zealous spending by Washington. No national strategy to get us out of slump.
How bad is it really… GDP is very fragile. 10-year note depressed. Consumer Price Index is weakening. Fed Funds rate anemic. Consumer spending at historic lows. Unemployment rate is appalling.
What are some of the signs… Volatility of the stock market. Growing national debt. Unsustainable entitlement programs. No plan to create jobs.
What follows society in decline… Neighborhoods abandoned. Cities begin to decay. Families are displaced and homeless. People give up.
So what is needed? Even a modest plan would be helpful. Brainstorming by bright decision makers. Removal of bi-partisan bickering. A national commitment to do better.
What can WE do? Refuse to follow the herd instinct. Look for consistency in chaos. Be realistic. Make a plan, follow the plan.
How to approach things… Pay attention to what is happening. Keep an open mind. Make sensible, thoughtful decision. Allow yourself to be taught.
What is it we are talking about? Getting your money working for you again. Hedging up against inflation. Using proven, believable long term strategies. Being part of the solution.
Owning rental real estate.. Buying residential rental properties. Helping supply a needed commodity. Single family homes or 2-4 units. Tangible assets that you already have an understanding of.
Why real estate.. It is not just a paper investment, you can touch it. It will last for a long, long time. It is not „rocket science. It‟s management duties can delegated.
How predictable is real estate… This graph represents 25 years of data Graph is from www.homepricegraph.com
What about rental vacancies… The vacancy rate has decreased. Homeowners are becoming renters. Underwriting guidelines tightened. Rental rate have risen.
Why do this now… Prices are low, mortgage rates are low. Competition to buy is modest. Foreclosures will continue. People need housing now.
Why partner with others… Expertise of others helps give you a start now. The hard parts of managing are taken care of – fixing/maintaining/screening/rents/repairs/etc. All of this in done in „background‟.
Recapping challenges Low returns everywhere. Home values have declined. Home sales are way down. Unemployment rate is high. Job creation has been shamefully slow. National media continues to scare everyone. Government is over-spending / over-regulating.
