Housing prices are high and inventory is low. That combination might cause you to wait when it comes to investing in real estate. But I think that’s the wrong approach. We’re not in normal economic times regarding the housing market; there’s no sign on the horizon that the housing market of yore (pre-pandemic) will ever return.
It’s getting more and more difficult for regular people, as opposed to institutional investors, to buy property. So if you have the means to invest in real estate today, you might want to, as the conditions favor both flippers and landlords. Plus, real estate provides a great hedge against inflation.
