Plus: Out of state investors

Dallas is in deep trouble. Despite all the amazing news recently about how successful Dallas has been with economic growth, a booming real estate market and companies relocating there - a single issue could potentially spell bankruptcy for the city. That is issue pensions. What is more important is that this is not an issue limited to Dallas.

While they have some issues that accelerated the problem, this is an issue that nearly all pensions systems MUST eventually face. Of course, pension failures and cities going bankrupt will have an effect on any local real estate market. Lets talk about it and see what segments of the market are likely to be hit.

Lets take a look at some cities that might replace Silicon Valley

It is not cheap to run a business in Silicon Valley. It is also not cheap to live in Silicon Valley. Technology and infrastructure in towns all across the country have finally matured to the point where the value proposition of starting your company in Silicon Valley is less persuasive.

There have been times in the past where big nam companies have considered leaving Silicon Valley and California - but we are finally at a point where the barriers to making it work just don't really exist. The Wall Street Journal published an article about up and coming tech hubs that just might be the next Silicon Valley - so we will take a look at them and see if we might just be able to make a ground floor investment in a city that is about to have a tech boom!

With FHA being available, a duplex might just be for you!

I have made no secret that I am a big fan of boosting my return on investment whenever I can. For years, I have personally focused on single family residential homes.

Plus homeowner price expectations and foreclosures

The Trump team spent some time talking about their goals relating to some real estate issues since yesterdays show. We will take some time to review the latest info.

Also, an interesting statistic on foreclosures came out. Definitely worth thinking about. Homeowners are getting closer to correctly estimating their properties value when compared to appraisals - at least in general. We will review the areas where sellers are overestimating and underestimating by the biggest margins.

The election could mean huge changes to regulations and organizations!

Well folks, it is all over and next year we will have President Trump.

In addition, we will have a Republican controlled House and Senate. That is a pretty big deal and it lays the ground work for some gigantic changes in terms of the regulations, federal agencies and government sponsored agencies that currently exist.

So today we are going to take a closer look at what the Republican platform might tell us about some real estate related targets of the new administration. It is also looking like some things we talked about earlier in the year - like the elimination of Dodd Frank - are far more likely to actually happen in 2017.

So lets start the conversation and see what might just be changing or getting eliminated all together!

What does real estate look like under either of these candidates?

It is election time and one way to try and decide would be to figure out what real estate might look like under a President Clinton or a President Trump.

As much as both of those options make me throw up in my mouth a little, lets sit down and entertain the possibilities.

HousingWire shares where they think real estate is going

On todays show we are going to do a quick run down on what technology I am currently using to get me through my day, stay on track and work toward achieving my goals. Of course, with my upcoming video series, I am going to get into more nitty gritty detail on how to use tools to analyze your real estate options, but since both Microsoft and Apple recently had tech introduction events over the last week, I figured now might just be a good time to talk tech and even make some suggestions.

We will also review a recent article from HousingWire on what they think the new normal is going to be. I don't completely agree, but in some ares we are at least in the same ballpark. On one point, I completely disagree - and its a biggie!
