Jason Hartman takes today’s episode talking with new investment counselor Doug about several economic signs that have been potentially helpful for real estate investors. The first area of focus is surburban real estate. Rent increases in the suburbs have been climbing faster than in urban areas and the RV ratios out there are nearly always better. Then the topics drift to more economic data coming out that includes an inverted yield curve, negative equity and a decline in quarterly sales for Toll Brothers.
Finally the Property Profile is from Kansas City, MO.
