I want to share with you 3 or 4 of the ways I help keep money protected in a market that has peaked and is trending down. I know many are probably asking what’s my opinion on the current market? Well, as I record this episode in early January, 2019 I will only say that I believed the market has cooled a bit in my area. I’m sounding any alarms. All markets ebb and flow, tides rise and fall, and sometimes there are insane bubbles and crashes – does that sound familiar? So my answer is this: I am agnostic on US real estate at the moment – neither hot nor cold – the waves are not massive, fear and doom inducing trends. But I will certainly start looking more into the national indicators as I do the 4 things I’m about to share with you now.
1 – Tighten up lending requirements
• Demand more skin in the game from your borrower
• More reserves to pay on a loan that goes long
• quality of borrower’s RE portfolio: High-end vs. slum
2 – Scrutinize the comps – utilize a downside price contingency
• Look for a tight radius on the comps map – no more than ¼ – ½ mile, do not cross any major roads or intersections
• Are DOM (Days On Market)increasing and prices decreasing? Notice a lot of price reductions?
• Age of comp: Last 30 best, 60 manageable, no more than 90 days preferred. More than that is outdated and old, like a rotary phone or my Atari 2600
3 – Lower LTV
4 – Look for longer terms with established landlords/seller financers. My not pay as much, but Steady payments, ride out the trough and get ready for the next upmarket ride, don’t have to work your money as much.
