I would say buy low and sell high...simple advice but one that works for a lot of people!

Tim O'Keefe

Which leads to analysis paralysis.

Emotional reasons are why people buy. Buy low and sell high works very well in the world of stocks and such. But contrary to the popular "Bubblista" mentality, people are buying in this market despite the popular logic.

Owning a home is an emotional experience that reaches beyond rational reasons. Much like the energy of those reporting about a crash. It reaches beyond rationality.

But salespeople all know (or should) that nothing is ever bought for a rational reason. ever.

Those that live on buy low or sell high are still buying for emotional reasons. But those reasons are most often not reasons that fit for most home buyers reasons.


people are not that rational in the context of business


Now is a good time to buy real estate in certain markets, especially in certain areas of San Francisco Bay Area.

The one thing to keep in mind though is this isn't a buy and flip market. Make sure your have affordable and good financing, and buy for the long haul.

It's a good time to buy real estate, in Greater Phoenix, AZ, because the we're in the low cycle of "buy low, sell high". Not only do buyers and true investors have a choice but rates are still phenomenally good and home prices are a bargain, in some neighborhoods in the Phoenix valley, the market can't keep up with demand resulting increasing prices.


TITLE: "When It Comes To Wealth and Commercial/Investment Real Estate...You Know What To Do..."

Hi Everyone -

I just ran across this article by Darin Garman and thought you'd be interested...especially considering what's happening with today's real estate market! Enjoy!

"When It Comes To Wealth and Commercial/Investment Real Estate...You Know What To Do..."

We All Know What To Do...

One of the things I hear a lot from investors is "How Do I Start?

"What Kind of Properties Should I Buy?"

"Do I Buy A Property In The Heartland?"

"Do I Buy A Single Property Or Mutliple?"

"Should I Be in Your Next Investment Fund Or Not?"

All VERY good questions. However, if you are really honest with yourself you more than likely already know the answer.

How? Because deep down you really know what you need to do to get the results you are after - even your wealth goals.

For example. If you want to lose weight you just stop eating so much and exercise. You burn more calories than you take in. There are 9,000 diet books and plans out there but this is the universal truth.

See we ALL know this but how many times do some of us say to ourselves "How do I get rid of some of this excess weight"

You know how.

When it comes to investment real estate you know how much time you have to commit to this, (manage a property yourself or have it done for you i.e funds). You know how much money you want to invest, you know that real estate is an investment that is more long term than short term.

So, BEFORE you decide to proceed with a commercial investement property make the decision to move forward with what you REALLY know to be true about yourself and what you really expect, then move forward. You know what to do...really.
