Mortgage rates are up to 6%, which has doubled the cost of owning a home if you’re not buying with cash. How does this affect the opportunities that are out there? Chris Prefontaine, known in the industry as The Smart Real Estate Coach, sits down and chats with me about the most profitable strategies in real estate currently, and how you can generate cash flow/wealth in ANY market. It’s important to know which groups to target during certain periods in the market (i.e. for sale by owner) and this allows you to make money no matter what economic circumstances we’re facing. Tune in for more insight.

-Are interest rates positive, negative, or meaningless?
-Chris says that this is the best thing that has happened in a long time; the demand for the creative real estate space is huge. What people could once afford in terms of housing is no longer affordable. People can’t buy/sell the way that they used to
-When you can help buyers and sellers, you can create wealth
-You need to know where to fish—what sellers to speak with, and how to use crashes to create profitable strategies
-One group to “fish” in entails for sale by owner
-It’s important to be cautious about how you respond to the media. You need to be able to structure deals in ANY market—this is what creates cash flow/wealth
-You don’t need cash to buy property
-There is not one massive market, but many pockets of the market

As rates and dividends yields are going up, it is increasingly difficult to find higher returns in the current market. Joe Robert comes on the show to share his perceptions of the market right now, addressing real estate, digital assets, and various classes that are all being affected in the current economy. It’s important to change your investing strategy and adapt in light of the bear market we’re situated within. Joe also touches on his fund— the Robert Ventures Fund—which is in place to help you leverage opportunities in alternative asset classes. Tune in for more insight.

-We’re experiencing a slow-down/pullback
-Prices in the real estate sector will possibly come down by a few percent
-Some would argue we’re in a bear market, so you have to change your strategy and adapt
-When in doubt, don’t over-leverage, and be sure to have substantial cash reserves to jump on opportunity that presents itself and cover your debt service
-Leverage can be risky proposition; all loans should be at lower levels
-The real estate market will probably take 12-24 months to experience a price decline
-Crypto/stocks will probably see more of a ‘crab market’ for the next year—where things move less uniformly
-How do you know when to get back into the digital asset markets? Joe thinks that we have seen the bottom or will soon see the bottom
-With digital assets, there is no fundamental market. They trade off of emotion many times, and are based on which direction the market is moving in as a whole
-Is regulation in the digital asset market welcome or unwelcome? Some laws could definitely be put in place to create a better environment for everybody
-The US government is stepping in and can force exchanges to comply
-Joe has been a heavy real estate investor over the last ten years, and is in the process of setting up a fund that will offer excellent returns
-This is a straight yield fund
