I will continue to link to interesting stories and data on the real estate market. I weed through a lot of them and only try to highlight the ones that have a new take or angle on the situation – good or bad.
One such article is a recent post in the San Diego Business Journal, titled “Real Estate Market Trends Don’t Matter Anymore”.
The writer has a pretty negative view on the state of real estate development and property investment, but he starts to argue that it doesn’t really matter. I wish he had taken this point a bit further in the article because it is a good one.
Simply put, there are opportunities in every market. There are strategies that make money, that provide value and meet the needs of the moment.
Most real estate investors have a choice.
Wait until market fundamentals return to what was going on in the early part of the decade and then do what you did then.
Find out what is working now, and change what you do to match that.
What do you choose?
