“The Truth About The Storm”
Hello Again,
Here’s an appropriate analogy for this time of year. Have you ever noticed that whenever it’s hurricane season, the media is
constantly giving us news about the potential threat of a disturbance that may be coming. As soon as there’s any disturbance,
they pounce all over it and they literally create fear and anxiety in the viewers.
For those of us who have lived in Florida for a long time, we know that the weather before a hurricane is typically wonderful;
we know the storm is dangerous IF it affects us, and we also know that the weather after the storm is typically even better
than it was before the storm.
Today’s Real Estate Market is like a Hurricane. The “market” before the storm was wonderful. During the Storm the market is
dangerous IF it affects us, and we fully expect the market to be wonderful again after the storm passes.
Allow me to expand on this statement: “During the Storm the market is dangerous IF it affects us”. I mean no disrespect to
anyone who absolutely has to sell in this market; my comments are directed to those who don’t absolutely have to sell. If you
decide to sell now, understand that you will have to be prepared to take less than you expect. Given a choice, why would
anyone sell during the storm?
Our Tampa Bay Market has been, still is, and will continue to be over saturated with available properties for the foreseeable
future. As Supply exceeds demand, prices fall, and days on market get longer. As prices fall and days on market get longer,
home sellers get hurt. When home sellers get hurt, they lower prices to make their problem go away.
In the Oriental culture they symbol for crisis and opportunity are the same. Ying and Yang if you will. Now, knowing that this
storm will pass and that now is not a good time to sell (Crisis), conversely it must be a good time to buy (Opportunity). We’ve
already tested our property values and we know how high they went, so in my opinion, they should return to those levels in
You do the math: If a buyer has cash sitting somewhere other than in real estate, and they took enough cash out to make a
30% deposit on an investment property. It’s probably reasonable that values that today are 30% less than they were in 2005
may likely be say 20% higher than they are today in the next 3 to 5 years. One of the beautiful parts about real estate
investing is that your appreciation is based on the acquisition price however your equity is only based on the amount of your
down payment.
Ex: Buy a $300,000 house today that was worth $400,000 a few years ago.
Put $90,000 down - In three to five years say it’s worth $360,000. You get a $60,000 profit on a $90,000 investment,
that’s 66% or 22% a year for 3 years and that doesn’t take into account the interest, Taxes and Depreciation write
So let’s go forward knowing that this storm will pass and on the other side the weather will be beautiful and let’s remember
that inside every crisis is an opportunity waiting for those who seize it.
Until next time, may you have fair weather and following Seas!
