Humble food for thought - the future of real estate

Some economists are talking about significant inflation coming our way within the next 2 to 5 years. I think that kind of talk should be taken seriously by anyone holding real estate. One has to plan now to position himself/herself in such a way as to avoid potentially catastrophic problems, while preparing to benefit from the situation. Remember, inflation can be your friend if you own real estate. Subsequent to an economic downturn, precipitated by inflation and high interest rates, real estate values will likely spike up. The trick is to be able to weather the high interest rates and the tough economic times and come out smelling of roses at the other end. Here are my recommendations:

1. Tie up low mortgage rates now for at least seven to ten years. Remember the last time we had galloping inflation? Mortgage rates hit record highs. Avoid a situation where you are faced with a mortgage renewal at double the rate or more.

2. Rental property owners should plan ahead, by avoiding short term leases. When rates are high, the economy slows and vacancies rise. You don't want to find yourself in an economic downturn with tenant(s) down-sizing, moving out or closing shop.

3. Many property owners are now securing shorter term mortgages at historically low rates. If mortgage rates rise dramatically as a result of high inflation, those property owners may be forced to sell at low prices or get foreclosed on (here we go again). So, plan ahead for a second round of cheap properties to pick up.

Please add your comments or criticisms. The more heads we can put together, the more clearly we can look into the future.

Are you a Gen-C?
 
It’s hardly news that young adults are the most digitally connected, but now Nielsen has come up with a new name for this group based on their common behaviors: “Generation C.”

The C stands for “connected,” and the group comprises Americans between 18 and 34 — who are defined by their digital connectivity, Nielsen and NM Incite’s U.S. Digital Consumer Report says. They consume media, socialize and share experiences through devices more than other age groups.

Are you part of Generation C? Do you like the terminology?

"For the past two years, we've been grateful to have the support of
residents and visitors who believe St. Petersburg shines as an arts
destination," said Mayor Bill Foster. "We've watched our arts
community flourish despite a tough economy, so continuing to come out
on top is further proof we made the right decision to cultivate arts
and culture in St. Petersburg."

Let's not lose this very important designation. Please vote for St
Petersburg ... use this link. http://svy.mk/ziD8WK

“Buyers walk in and fall in love and the property starts getting bid up.”
Bidding wars, absent from most parts of the U.S. residential market since its peak in 2006, are erupting from Seattle and Silicon Valley to Miami and Washington, D.C., as the inventory of homes hovers...

I'm just getting up to speed with my Pinterest... I think this will be the next great tool in Real Estate!
realtor.com originally shared:
 
We are lucky here at Realtor.com because we get to see beautiful real estate images all day long but what we’ve been really thrilled by lately is seeing what Pinterest users have been pinning to their boards.

What do you pin on Pinterest?
The most interesting thing about Pinterest is seeing what other people choose. Sometimes it can be images of jaw-dropping beauty, sometimes it can be helpful household tips or mouthwatering recipes

St. Petersburg, Florida Real Estate | Realtor®,SFR, BPOR | Keller Williams Realty | Experience, Professionalism, Commitment To Service In An Area I Love Living.
Introduction
Realtor, and SFR (Short-Sale Foreclosure Resource) Assisting home buyers and home sellers with all their residential real estate needs in St. Petersburg, Florida and areas of Tampa Bay.  As a Licensed Real Estate Sales Associate with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete,  I specialize in residential real estate within Pinellas County to include St.Petersburg, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs  and the Tampa Bay Beaches.

British born, I grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, and this is where I work, play and love living!  I have watched this city and the Suncoast communities of Pinellas County evolve into a very special place.   Real Estate is my passion and there is so much to be proud of living in the Tampa Bay area.   It is exciting for me to share this great place with my friends, visitors, clients and prospective new residents of The Sunshine City.
Located on the Suncoast of the Central Gulf Coast of Florida,  As a  Real Estate Professional, I can guide you through each step of the process and help you select a home that's right for you.

 I spent over 25 years in the financial services industry as a financial advisor where my success was a product of the relationships built on trust and cultivated by the superior servicing of my client's needs. These business relationships became personal and friendships for a life time.  This relationship management is the same skill set I bring to real estate.

"The Suncoast" is Florida living at it's finest!  I enjoy the active lifestyle of the Tampa Bay area.  There is SO much to be proud of and so much to be a part of.  Giving back to the community is important to me and I support the Pinellas County Florida Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

Meeting Your Needs - Exceeding Your Goals!

That is my promise to you, and a promise for a lifetime.
