If single family rental properties are your thing, these could be the perfect areas for you!

Once again we review the latest list of the top performing communities for investors that have decided the single family rental homes are the way to go.

We have some big numbers this time around and some of these metro areas look very exciting and most have a very low barrier to entry in terms of average price. So great places for first time investors to get going.

We will also spend some time talking about home inventory and what the news is saying.

We will review what is currently up with my first hand experience with real estate agent lies – so far 100% have lied to me to try to get a listing.

Then we will spend some time discussing some good news on architects getting more work. Plus, the big media is finally at least suggesting we need to build more homes.

As a property owner, beware the communities that want to infringe on your property rights

I am a big fan of property rights. It should be ridiculously hard for any government to take your property and infringe on your use of that land in any way. Don't for a minute think that this sort of thing is limited to eminent domain - as we will see, there are communities where governments will try to control your land without even going to the trouble of exercising eminent domain.

On todays show we are going to look at a couple of amazing stories of property owners and investors who are being forced to fight for their property rights in the face of governments that want to decide for them what can and cannot be done with their land. For you investors, knowing the communities where the cities are most likely to control or dictate your investment could save you a whole lot of heartache!

More credit score shenanigans pushes subprime lending to new heights!

I still can't believe what we will talk about in todays show is actually happening. It is, for lack of a better word, completely nuts.

Subprime lending is now back - at levels that even appear to dwarf the idiotic lending that went on that led up to the 2007 crash. It is just mind boggling. So lets explore this boggle and see if we can get a handle on just how big this issue is - because it is heading our way on July 1, 2017.

Some interesting new numbers are out relating to renting vs. buying. We will review them not only from the standpoint of buyers and sellers but also from the point of view of investors that will want to be ready for a market going through this kind of shift.

Concerning similarities today to the 1930s and 2006

We have looked at lots of interesting data this week. Some good, some not so good. Is the optimism and good vibes that are implied by the latest employment numbers misplaced? We take a look at some concerning parallels between today and to the times just before two major economic downturns - the great depression and housing collapse. It is kind of creepy but at least it leaves us with somethings to keep an eye on so that we might just be able to more easily see it coming.

It has been a long time since the employment numbers looked this good

For years now we have been talking about the employment numbers. Plenty of games have been played over the years with how they are calculated. Plus, we have been finding that the kind of jobs being created are not what we would hope for. Well, the most recent job numbers are actually telling an encouraging story - and I could not be happier to be able to finally share a happy opinion when it comes to employment! After all, if you want a healthy real estate market, one of the things you need to start with is a good employment market.

We will also talk about the odds of the Fed doing a rate hike in March.  Not all the news is entirely good. We have some numbers on the average size of debt being taken on and some other lending trends that are also likely to make things worse before they make it better.

More data today on how we might be remaking the housing bubble

More stories today that all seem to relate to one another. They fit together with past topics we have covered that leave me wondering what is going on with how much debt is being willingly and even happily taken on by consumers. As I have said before, it feels just a little bit too familiar. So are we resurrecting the housing bubble that kicked us around so horribly in 2007? Sadly, it looks like we might. Lets look at the latest numbers and see where we are.

State to state migration means changes in housing!

Welcome to it folks. Today we take a look at the ranking of states in terms of folks moving in and out. We will review the most moved to states and the least moved to - meaning they are seeing more people leaving than coming. Plus, we will spend some time discussing the states that had the biggest changes in their ranking on this list, since that might just suggest a change in the market in that state.

A cost effective home remodel intended to earn more in the sale than it costs me!

Could another debt bubble bring a real estate downturn?

A very interesting look at stats relating to consumer confidence and real wage growth. It could be a sign that the public in general is really more confident than they should be. The big question is, could this lead to a debt bubble that threatens the overall economy and real estate?

There is also some interesting news on what graduates and students think is going to happen with their student loans. 

The latest numbers on the GDP are disappointing.

Luxury real estate is taking a big hit - we called it.

Home prices have reached new heights in many areas.
