My recent real estate acquisitions and how you can benefit from this market.
In the last six months, I’ve taken a bold step in my investment journey by purchasing six different properties. I’d like to share my reasons for this decision in the hopes that it might offer valuable insights to others. The primary driver behind my move has been the state of interest rates.
Many potential homebuyers today are apprehensive about high interest rates, causing them to delay their real estate purchases. This hesitancy has led to an increase in inventory and longer days on the market, creating favorable conditions for buyers like me.
I’ve always believed in the wisdom of going against the crowd when the opportunity arises. While many are on the sidelines, waiting for lower interest rates, I’ve chosen to dive in. My prediction is that when interest rates eventually drop in 12, 24, or 36 months, there will be a rush of buyers entering the market, driving prices up once again.
Another factor motivating my real estate spree is the impact of inflation. Rising costs have slowed down new construction projects, as builders struggle to manage higher expenses. This reduced supply of new homes, coupled with consistent demand, is expected to exert upward pressure on prices.
Additionally, immigration rates are on the rise, adding to the demand for housing. With a supply shortage, inflationary pressures, and the potential for lower interest rates in the future, I believe real estate values can only move in one direction—upward.
Montreal, where I’ve focused my investments, is not a saturated market like Toronto or Vancouver, leaving ample room for appreciation. Hence, I’ve chosen to double down on my real estate holdings in the past six months.
The lesson here for prospective buyers is clear. If you’ve been contemplating your first property purchase, now might be the perfect time to act. Prices are likely to rise, while interest rates are expected to fall. The decision boils down to whether you want to buy now at a lower price with slightly higher interest rates or wait and pay more for the same property with lower interest rates.
