A is for Effort in 2024 Real Estate Investing
It is going to be a different market this year compared to years past. Rates are going to flatten out and everything will be changing. Rates are expected to hover between 6% and 7% this year. Predictions are also indicating that the Fed is going to lower their rates starting in May. Until then, this first quarter is going to be a little tougher for the consumer until we see that shift in rates. It is critical that real estate investors take the time to do more research in order to find the best deal. Those who do will receive an A for effort in 2024.
Look at more homes and do more research.
If you are going to be investing in this market, then you need to be willing to look at more properties. It is important to remember that you will need a 15% to 20% discount from where you were buying it a year ago. You will need to put in a little more effort and work. Those who look at 100 homes compared to 10 homes will find good properties. By spending 2 to 3 hours a day looking at properties, you will be successful in 2024.
In this market there is a shortage of homes compared to the number of people looking for properties. In order to find the more affordable properties, you will have to go smaller. What do we mean by smaller? The property would be less square footage or a smaller price point. In some cases both the square footage and the price point will be significantly less than they would have been a few years ago. By expanding your search area, you will find greater affordability. This might mean that you are looking into smaller communities in other states to find the best deals.
