7 Real Estate Investing Trends For 2017

7 real estate investing trends for 2017

This week veteran real estate investor and property manager Larry Arth discusses what he sees as 7 real estate investing trends For 2017.

He says optimism is strong but watch these 7 trends.

By Larry Arth

I have held many discussions with investors, builders, buyers and sellers heading into 2017, and their consensus, as well as everything I have read, leads me to this conclusion:

Real estate investing over the next three years will bring slow and steady increases similar to what we saw in 2016.

Now you may be thinking we are navigating unchartered territories with all the changes happening in the political scene. You may see a mixed bag of information making it difficult to assess your investment strategy.

Many are asking, “Why do so many people have such a different perspective on what the market for real estate will look like?”
