James D. Kuhn, President of New York City’s Newmark Knight Frank commercial real estate advisory firm joins Jason to discuss the forthcoming Trump presidency, what the presidency could mean for real estate markets and if it’s likely the US economy will soon see inflation. With no political history, Donald Trump is a wild card who was elected based on his job growth platform. Proper handling of trade policies and initiatives for corporate entities could spur job growth in low and middle class communities.

Key Takeaways:

[2:03] It is possible for Trump to spur the economy, especially in real estate.

[6:12] There will be winners and losers from Trump’s trade policies.

[11:19] James D. Kuhn believes the link between the lower and middle class benefiting from job growth is education.

[14:14] The demand for online college education is growing and it should be made available to everyone.

[16:14] Even before the election real estate investors thought it was hard to find value in the real estate market.

[19:00] The question for the Feds is, “at what point is the economy ready to handle inflation?”

[20:42] Real estate is the last great investment opportunity especially for those who watch their markets.

[23:09] An income property should make financial sense the day you buy it.
