These are the times we’re investing in…
The President of the United States doesn’t make Time’s Most Influential List but Jason Timberlake and Rosie do.
The newest [tag-tec]DC Madam[/tag-tec] looks more like she should be teaching Emily Dickinson’s poetry at some exclusive girls’ school instead of harboring the hot list that has the nation’s capital reeling.
Last but not least, the nation’s honeybee population is in real serious trouble. We might not get pollinated as a result.
How does all that affect us?
Real estate will still be bought and sold regardless- which is my point in writing this.
We can worry all day long about the trivial and sometimes, the not-so- trivial.

But I really don’t care what Cindy Sheehan thinks about Hillary; that she’s her least favorite Democrat and all.
Will that make the value of my [tag-ice]properties[/tag-ice] go down? Hardly.
All we need to do is recognize where the real estate cycle is now.
That’s not hard to do at all. We know the massive sell-off is over. Things are quieting down. You don’t have to be brilliant or even smart to figure that out.

So should we invest amid the new market conditions?
I can’t tell you how many posts I’ve read of folks crying about the fact that the whirlwind is over. They don’t want to get off the carousel. I feel sorry for them, because they might as well go to Mouse City(DisneyWorld).
As we’ve said, it’s a great time for the buy and hold investor to accumulate more holdings. You want more rental property?
Now’s your time.
Here’s an interesting article from Forbes which shows the most overpriced and the least overpriced markets.
The slide show which comes with it is also worth a look.
