Interest rates and the real estate market

3 Replies

Invest like you usually would. Find deals that work and have a good return. No matter what part of the market we are in you can find deals, don't let people tell you different. 

My experience and exposure is limited but I would imagine, like anything, Real estate is cyclical. I believe I've overheard 8 years is the typical cycle time... but there are always pros and cons for each stage of the real estate cycle and investing process. Low interest rates = time to borrow and spend. Rising interest rates = hold, lend and maintain. I also think that the bank requirements would change if interest rates were higher too, it's always a trade off

@Sam Fogelson with this slowly slowing market you can expect a couple of things

1. Interest rates will rise

2. Purchase prices will stop being "over valued"

Take advantage of the low interest rates today, lock in long term debt, but pair it with a stellar deal!
