Outlook on the Real Estate Market (Ep370)

We experienced an unprecedented drop in GDP in 2020 and record unemployment numbers. And yet, the real estate and stock markets seem to be doing fine. So, how do we make sense of this discrepancy? What is the economic outlook for 2021 and beyond? And is now a good time to invest in short-term rental properties?

He describes how STR investors can benefit from what he calls inflation-induced debt destruction, explaining why right now IS a good time to invest in real estate and when a mortgage is not a liability—but part of your asset. Listen in for Jason’s prediction around the future of the housing market and get his advice on aligning your interests with ‘the powers that be’ by investing in STR income properties!
