After a strong housing market runup, the Federal Reserve is looking to tame this economic beast with yet another rate hike. Most investors see now as a time to take a step back, invest less, and hold their financial positions steady. But, are we approaching a 2009/2010-type scenario where home prices dramatically drop, and deals are easier to find than ever before? On this month’s BiggerNews, we bring in Kathy Fettke, nationwide real estate investing expert and On the Market expert guest, to give her take on upcoming opportunities.
In a recession or correction, smart investors deploy their “defensive investing” techniques, allowing them to pick up steals, not just deals, and fold properties into their portfolio that can help float them during times of trouble. Even as an intense investor, Kathy adopts the “aggressively defensive” tactic, the same one Rich Dad Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki told her about back in 2008. Simply put, industry experts like Kathy aren’t thinking of selling—they’re focused on buying!
To wrap up, Dave, David, and Kathy give some practical tips on time management, and how to keep buying as you get busy. With only twenty-four hours in a day, these big-time investors still find ways to run business, record podcasts, and buy new deals, but only thanks to a system they’ve designed. Before you know it, you might be in too tight of a timeline to actively invest, so start implementing these tips now!
