The Power of Clearly Set Goals in Real Estate
“Your goals today will largely determine what your portfolio looks like 20 years from now, and thus your lifestyle.”
By Lou Gimbutis, Chief Homebuyer, Property Solutions, LLC

Goal setting is integral to success in any field of endeavor, but particularly in Real Estate Investing.  While differing strategies can certainly pay off very quickly, the greatest benefits come to those who buy property and hold on to it for a long, long time.  Rents tend to rise over time, correlating roughly with inflation, but your mortgage payment will stay the same.  Then, after years of watching rents rise, on one glorious day you will find that your tenant has fully paid off the house.  It is extremely hard to find someone who has owned income real estate for over 20 years who is not doing extremely well financially.  Your goals today will largely determine what your portfolio looks like 20 years from now, and thus your lifestyle.  Continued…

 Working from Home Propels Home-Buying Boom in Master-Planned Communities
Rental Housing Journal:  January 26, 2021

Working from home has proven to be a sweet freedom amid a year of COVID-19 restrictions, as there has been a home-buying boom in master-planned communities, according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting.

“For many, work-from-home flexibility eliminated the need for proximity to an office. The usual trade-off between a dream home and a dream job evaporated, as quickly as a ready supply of toilet paper,” write Burns consultants Jody Kahn, Devyn Bachman, and Nicole Luszczak.

“Master plans’ new-home sales boomed across the country as work-from-home opportunities became permanent for many, and commute times became a drudgery of the past. Our consulting associates connect this newfound flexibility to skyrocketing sales in 2020.”  Read the Full Article
