CollegeTowns | Ken McElroy Image

College towns offer excellent investment opportunities, but a lot of investors are apprehensive about the thought of college students as tenants.

How Real Estate Can Beat Inflation

How Real Estate Can Beat Inflation | Ken McElroy Image

Former president Ronald Reagan once remarked, “Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.” While there’s a fair amount of hyperbole in that statement, the comparison of inflation to a robber is an apt one. As a market force, inflation can and will devalue…...

Scoping out the perfect short sale home

Finding Short Sales | Ken McElroy Image

Finding the Right Short Sale Property
If you’ve been considering an investment in real estate or buying a home, you may have found yourself looking at short sale listings. But what exactly is a short sale? A short sale occurs when a lender allows a homeowner to sell their property for less than they owed on the existing mortgage. This process allows the lender and the homeowner to avoid the lengthy and costly foreclosure process. Unlike regular home sales, in a short sale, the lender is actually the one approving the sale

Secondary Markets Outperform Primary Markets

Secondary Markets Outperform Primary Markets | Ken McElroy Image

Primary markets as most of you know are suffering. What we are seeing is a lot of secondary markets by the big cities are heating up as the cities cool down. For example, as Washington DC cools, Virginia Beach heats up. Same with San Francisco -> Sacramento and Los Angelis -> Riverside. The truth is, these more expensive cities were already at their tipping point prepandemic. The pandemic only accelerated it.

The Nine Most Important Things to Consider, When buying a Rental Property….

The Nine Most Important Things to Consider When buying a Rental Property…. | Ken McElroy Image

People often times miss this very important question. They try and measure the cashflow of the future value, or they say they don’t mind feeding it some money each month. To be direct, it is only a good investment if it cashflows based on the rents and expenses of today, not the future rents you think you will get five years from now. Cashflow is the most important thing when deciding on a rental property.

Thumbnail 8 2020 07 31 2021 Crash YT Thumbnail | Ken McElroy Image

A correction is coming to the real estate market and I expect to see it early next year. Each downturn is very similar to the next. We have high unemployment, and housing prices that are extremely inflated. Yet, people keep asking me, “how can you say it’s going to crash when prices are skyrocketing? If I keep waiting, I’m going to miss out on the buying opportunity!” So let me put a few things into perspective for you. This is a supply and demand issue. That is what inflates and deflates prices: inventory versus demand for housing
