Getting through the rough times

So often, when we go through rough economic times, it’s because of a business cycle. We all remember the 2008 crash and how long it took to recover. This time it’s different, there was no problem with the economy, this was a government mandated shutdown. We can argue about the way things have been done, but that will help no one. We have to look forward and not back, so let’s look forward and since my business is Real Estate, let’s talk Real Estate.

Let’s look at interest rates. As of the time I am writing this article, the 30 year fixed rate is 3.790%. There are many different products out there that can even get you a lower rate, so despite the short term economic slowdown, it is a great time to buy if you are in a position to do so. Now, another great opportunity for home buyers is that many people have put buying a home on hold. For the buyer who is ready to buy right now, you are in a great position to bargain. People who need to sell now are going to be a little more open to negotiation then they might have been a month ago. Now if you have concerns about your job situation, buying a home would not be the best thing to do, but once this crisis is over, I expect that people will not only be buying homes but everything else they have been missing.

Take advantage when you can


Now none of us should hoard anything in these difficult times. What has been happening to toilet paper and paper towels has been very disappointing. But there are things that you can take advantage of during these difficult times. My favorite is “Costco” gas. Now I haven’t been able to go to “Costco” like I usually do to shop, because of the crowds and shortage of goods, but gas has been a different story. I never get to purchase “Costco” gas, because of the very long lines, but now, I make sure I am filled up every day because the price is great and the lines have been short or none at all. This also may be a great time to book a trip. Since no one is traveling, booking trips for the future could get you some very good prices. Buying any large ticket items, like appliances or cars could also be a great way to save some money.

Getting through these rough times is not easy, but we all know it will pass and whether you are stuck in your home or not, we all have to look to the future and not get dragged into the negative attitude that following the numbers everyday can lead us to. There are always going to be bad things that happen, but we need to be positive. My suggestion, turn off the TV and find something else to occupy your time. You will be much happier and hopefully healthier.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
