BAWB Monthly Meeting - May 19th, 2016

WHY investing in Real Estate is still one of the Best Ways to Build Real Wealth

It’s a Presidential Election Year and no matter WHO gets elected a lot of change will happen.

With Manipulated interest rates provided cheap credit, our Economy clicking along with almost no GDP Growth and the bumpy ride of a Stock market gyrating up and down; some are calling our current Economy a “Growth Recession”.
Despite what the Press may be writing; many financial experts feel the U.S. Economy is in very dangerous territory right now. Perhaps MORE dangerous than anything we’ve seen since the Great Depression.

  • The DOW and S &P may precipitously slide…
  • Banks and Bank Stocks Will Crash- Again; some are saying harder than in 2008 as It becomes near impossible for most clients to pay back insurmountable debt they are now accumulating and will owe.
  • Oil and Gold will be hit Hard – these two standard bearer’s commodities may be in for a free fall.
  • The Retirement Dreams of Millions of Americans will be shattered.

Yes Real Estate has bounced back over the last few years. However the FED’s near 0% interest rate policy has afforded many folks the ability to buy a home. This policy along with other government intervention has also artificially boosted the “value” of this asset class.

Every Bubble in history has a very distinct and similar pattern. There is BIG upward price movement that becomes unsustainable that’s followed by a correction and sometimes an historic crash.

If the Stock Market tanks, so does the Housing market and vice versa. No matter who you are, this is hugely impactful.
