Rollercoaster Rides Of The Real Estate Business

Mar 6, 2008
Housing cycles are usually based on long trend intervals, long periods of ups and downs. The housing industry today is very unpredictable much like the stock market, one week it's up and then the next week it's down. Home buyers tend to react much like any other investor in other asset classes which is they depend on what they ingest during the week to make their investment decisions. This makes the task of predicting where the real estate market will go more challenging.

Predicting the real estate market is not as easy as putting your ears on the railroad tracks to determine when trains are coming through the faintest of sounds that vibrated along the tracks. This indictor worked for trains, will it work for the housing market if investors continually news that the real estate industry is going on an upward trends?

One of the biggest questions looming in the minds of homeowners and commercial real estate investors for the year is whether the real estate industry will be able to make up for what it lost last year or will things get worse? Residential real estates experienced one of the most painful fall last year in decades. Default on loans, falling house prices, dropping home ownership, soaring foreclosures with the housing market emerging as the economy's soft underbelly characterized the industry last year.

Commercial real estate started 2007 on a bright note until it went the other way around with tightening of credit and values of commercial properties going down for the first time in several years. Commercial real estate includes properties in the market like apartment buildings, offices and shopping centers.

Real estate fraud actually encompasses a broad subject who covers deception or malicious schemes in the real estate industry. There are typically two major types of real estate fraud to consider, mortgage fraud and title fraud.

In Mortgage fraud, it is usually financial institutions that become victims of unscrupulous individuals. These financial institutions lend the money to purchase property. However, individuals will artificially inflate the value of the property in order to get a higher mortgage than the actual price. In Title Fraud, most victims are homeowners when individuals using false or stolen identity transact with them in order to transfer the title under the fraudster's name. This type of fraud can also evolve to mortgage fraud when the fraudster applies for a mortgage on the falsely acquired title.

Basically, estate planning is a process that involves people. It may include your family, friends, other people and in some cases, charitable or non-profit organizations. It also of course involves your estate or properties in whatever form of ownership those assists are in. It will also include preparing for your future requirements in case of an event that will render you incapable of taking care of yourself.

Important details that you can settle with estate planning includes: how your properties will be managed for you and your beneficiaries benefit and who will manage them. Another is what circumstances would cover the distribution of your assets including the manner how they will be distributed. Finally, how will your health be managed and taken cared of when you lose the ability to do it yourself.
