Jason Hartman discusses some key aspects for real estate investors. One of the most important, and most visible, components of investing is interest rates, and there are some absolutely critical things you need to remember about them. Interest rates impact real estate supply and demand, and home affordability. People buy homes based on payments, not price, and mortgage rates impact those dramatically.
Jason also looks at why some libertarians just don’t pay attention to an economic reality and gives a big announcement about the Creating Wealth seminar in Philadelphia in May.
