The real estate world is transforming, and if you've been through the ups and downs of the market before, you may be experiencing déjà vu. I talked about a real estate reset in one of my latest videos and how it compares to the chaos of 2008.
The Current Landscape: The real estate market is at a crossroads, with commercial properties taking a harder hit than residential ones. However, both sectors are feeling the impact of shifting tides. What's driving this change? It's rising interest rates.
The Impact of Rising Interest Rates: Higher interest rates directly affect borrowing costs and can trigger a decrease in property values. Consider this: A $100,000 loan at 3% interest costs $3,000, but at 7%, it costs $7,000. As a result, borrowers find themselves offering less than sellers desire, affecting property values and negotiations.
If real estate investors still want higher returns, they must adapt to higher borrowing costs, making the market increasingly competitive.
The Banking and Investment Perspective: Defaults on loans are rising, especially in commercial real estate sectors like office buildings and retail malls. The impact extends beyond the surface, potentially affecting limited partner investments (LPI). This could, in turn, impact pensions, life insurance returns, and 401k investments. Understanding where your cash is invested and being financially literate is crucial.
These points are a small sample of why I believe we're going through the early stages of a real estate reset. Watch the video below to discover more trends leading to a reset and what you can do to prepare for it.
