Heath's Blog


It is the worst of times, It is the best of times.

The real estate business has never had more opportunities.  Prices are low.  Interest rates are low.  Inventory in almost every part of the US has property that provides an opportunity. 

These days look like the days in the 1980s and 1990s that were the trough of the next wave of investing.  The crash in the 80s came from government changing the tax code relative to investment properties.  The changes in the 90s came partly from people cashing out of the stock market and driving up real estate prices with their cash profits.

And the real estate market today is recovering from government causing lenders to make loans that would have been rejected at other times in history.  BUT - this too shall pass.  Just lake all waves there is a trough and then another wave. It looks like we are poised for the next swell!

I'm so excited about what's to come.  I picked up "Shift" by Gary Keller and everything you say is right in there.  It's helpful to see it in black and white, graphs and charts.  If you have anyone even considering NC I'll gladly do a referral of 25%.  Talk to you soon.

I feel the same way but being in Michigan, I don't know if I can survive the wait. I'd hooped up with another company that makes me money off bills for services and products I was using or was going to in the future. That has created an income stream to suppliment real estate, and I share it with my clients that are having to adjust their living and finances due to the economy here as well.  It's pretty cool. I don't have to sell anything unless I want to, and after being in the office most of the day, I just don't. I'm the only customer I have, and all I did was shift my bills over to where I'm buying them through my own website.

Anyone else that needs to offset their losses can email me and I'll get their questions answered. I know that i'm not the only one that has financial needs, and we can all make money off ourselves to get us through these trying times.

Just let me know, I'll be glad to help.

This market and economy remind me very much of when I was a Realtor in Texas in the 1970s-1980s. We had just experienced double-digit inflation, gas prices going up a nickel every day, and suddenly everything collapsed. The Texas economy was based on oil, and when oil prices collapsed, so did the Texas economy.

You are spot on!  There are opportunities all around us and it is an amazing time to buy!  It is in hard times that we grow and learn who we are and what we are made of.  I am excited about what is going on, what I am learning about myself and who I will be and what all will come of this "wonderful" time that we are in.  Of course, it can come anytime now :)  :)  :)

Have a great day!!
