I just wanted to post a reminder to everyone. If you wish to promote your product, service, show or anything else on this page, you MUST get permission from The RebelBroker first. Since this page focuses on my podcast, the goal is to discuss questions or topics that are covered by the show - basically a forum around which listeners can talk about what is brought up in the show.

I am not opposed to promoting other folks stuff, but not until I have had a chance to check it out and determine if I want to invest my reputation in someone else's content or product.

As the page grows, I am seeing TONS of spam posts, which I promptly ban. As for other "not show related" posts, I have tried to use a 3 strikes style approach, but that has become too time consuming.

So, as I encounter posts that don't meet this very low bar, I will simply ban the poster.

Todays Podcast "Existing home sales jump in January!" has been published on Real Estate Realities With "The Rebel Broker" - http://therebelbroker.com/2017/02/existing-home-sales-jump-in-january/8916 :



Existing home sales may be up, but the reason is up for debate
Existing home sales took a big jump in January, but I am going to offer an alternate explanation than what the press seems convinced of. Plus, we can also talk about mortgage applications – since that is one way to tell the future a little bit in terms of sales over the next month or so.
All cash deals have increased. We will discuss that a bit. We will also review some investment advice I gave out back when all the talk was about the Olympics and the opportunities presented by that.

Todays Podcast "Is investing in a condo a good idea?" has been published on Real Estate Realities With "The Rebel Broker" - http://therebelbroker.com/2017/02/is-investing-in-a-condo-a-good-idea/8911 :



Investing in a condo might not be the best way to go
The folks at biggerpockets published an article about the downsides of investing in a condo. We are going to review those, plus expand that list with some of the rebelbrokers experiences in the area. Does this mean you should never invest in a condo? No, but as a guy who owns an investment condo, you REALLY need to do your homework. A poor choice or not enough due diligence in this scenario can cast you more than you can imagine.
We will also take a few minutes to chat about peak rent and how the increase in available apartments could impact your property for rent, no matter what type it is.
Finally, we will also cover another article that makes an interesting point about housing costs.

Todays Podcast "The Lease Option - what to worry about" has been published on Real Estate Realities With "The Rebel Broker" - http://therebelbroker.com/2017/02/the-lease-option-what-to-worry-about/8907 :



3 Things folks at BiggerPockets say you should be aware of with the lease option
I am a fan of the lease option. It can be a great way to dodge the sellers market crush of buyers and get yourself into a property without having to come up with tons of money right up front. I like using it when I can and for many buyers out there, it is a great tool to know how to use. However, it does have a few items worth knowing about that could throw a wrench into the work. We are going to chat about those and how to be ready for them… if you can.

Lets talk data and what it means to the real estate market.
An interesting series of articles caught my eye over the last week. They all seem to feed into one another and they could spell some big challenges for the real estate market.
We will be chatting about mortgage delinquencies, inflation, price indexes and over all debt and what that might mean for the real estate market. The worry is that we are creating a very challenging environment for people that kind of reminds me of the situation we created last time things went nuts.

Todays Podcast "Real Estate Taxes To Pay For Free College Tuition?" has been published on Real Estate Realities With "The Rebel Broker" - http://therebelbroker.com/2017/02/real-estate-taxes-to-pay-for-free-college-tuition/8903 :



San Francisco is going to tax properties in the city to pay for junior college
The city of San Francisco has created a new transfer tax that will be used (very partially) to pay for junior college tuition – for anyone – well, anyone that has lived in the city for at least 1 year.
While we can debate whether or not the government taking money from one group and giving it to another to provide a free college education on some other occasion, what we are most interested today is what this will likely do to the real estate market in San Francisco.

When buying vacant land, due diligence is the key!
USNews published an article recently about the most important Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to buying vacant land. We are going to run down that list and expand on what they have to say. In fact, we will even completely disagree with one of their points and suggest a path for success.
We are also going to quickly discuss the disconnect we are currently seeing between what sellers believe their home to be worth and what appraisers are saying. Then we chat about mortgage rates and we will break down what you should be thinking about as we try to anticipate changes in the mortgage rates before they happen.

Areas where the biggest housing shortage between buyers and what they are looking for exist.
Today we are going to discuss the top 10 metro areas where there is the biggest disconnect between what kind of homes buyers are looking for and what is available in the inventory of that metro. This is a housing shortage story that focuses on the market for each home – put into the categories of starter homes, trade-up homes and premium homes. The numbers are pretty interesting and can help calibrate you to where the greatest level of demand is for these different home types.

It is a great way to get calibrated to where investment dollars are working hardest for investors.
We are also going to take some time to review some news relating to the jobs revolution I have been going on about for a while. Some very interesting new stats on just how much of an impact this might have on government jobs.
