153: State Of The Real Estate Market, Housing Affordability, Hurricanes
State Of The Real Estate Market, Housing Affordability, Hurricanes
Where are real estate prices headed? I discuss this with Kathy Fettke of The Real Wealth Network. Demand still exceeds supply in many places. But in coastal areas, affordability problems could be a constraint on future appreciation. The latest Case-Shiller 20-City Index shows 5.7% year-over-year housing price growth. Though this surely an imperfect metric, it is a historically sustainable growth rate. It is also supported with responsible lending. Kathy & I have each invested through the 2008-2009 Mortgage Meltdown and Great Recession. We discuss how that shapes our investor behavior. I also discuss how natural disasters like hurricanes can pummel those that have a lot of equity in their properties. I bring you today’s show from Punta Gorda, Belize.
