Surviving In A Slow Real Estate Market

Aug 18, 2007
The real estate market fluctuates, as it suddenly booms and sometimes it suddenly stagnates. It is really quite amusing to see some financial gurus try to predict the real estate rise. As all markets slow down at some period of time, real estate also toes the line and it is really gibberish when the real estate gurus say that real estate investment can be made at any time. Investment or selling is best when the market hits the highest point. If you are an investor and want to survive this slowing phase, then you must follow some simple strategies.

. How to look out for profit in a slow real estate Market?

If you are an investor and you realize the downward phase, change the investment strategy like some tough investors who prefer investing in some finest areas as they can afford to buy during this slumping phase. Experienced investors know that an investment in a famous area will surely boom in due course. By working like this, the investors try to leverage their investment by selling the property in the boom phase and then again buying in some other area and this way they always remain a step ahead. Upcoming areas surely peak in due course but they are not swept away during the boom phase nor do they peak fast. Professional investors buy such areas and sell when the real estate booms and again buy what they can afford and place themselves up for the next boom; this cycle thus goes on.

. Reduce your speculation- If you think that the time is not appropriate then dont invest. Cut back on investments and also slow down on home improvements or renovation projects. Dont assume that home improvement can raise your property value and thus justify your expense because in a slow market this trick does not work.

. Always remember the supply and demand circle
Property prices dont shoot up suddenly. If you study the real estate market well, then you may realize that over the past few decades, stand-alone properties have only gained 1% profit above inflation. This proves the market cycle and the fact that the market runs out when investors are ready to invest at any inflated price, with the new investors frozen out of the market. When there is no demand then there is no supply. So as an investor, closely examine the market trend and check when the supply exceeds the demand. With this observation, you can evaluate the right time to buy and sell.

. Stabilize the real estate revelation- You may think that you are only exposed to the real estate market with regard to your assets which you physically hold. This is not true as you should also consider your paper savings. Think about investments in REITs or mutual funds that invest in commercial property or infrastructure. You cannot expect the fund managers to always be right.

. Safeguard your equity- There is nothing more worth than your equity, so do not risk it. It is very tempting to re-mortgage for better value of your home but in doing so you are exposing yourself and your family to an unbearable risk.
