The Shocking Housing Market Crash: What You Need to Know

Welcome back to The Most Dwanderful Real Estate Podcast Ever, where we delve into the nuanced world of real estate investing. In our latest podcast episode, Dwan, unpacks the truly eye-opening dynamics of the recent housing market crash. Let’s explore the compelling discussion and learn how you can navigate these turbulent times.

A Bit of Backstory

Dwan Bent-Twyford’s story is as remarkable as it is inspiring. From a broke single mom fired from Denny’s to becoming America’s most sought-after real estate investor, her journey is a testimony to resilience, tenacity, and an unwavering belief in possibilities. She has spent five years sharing invaluable insights into the world of real estate through her podcast, “The Most Wonderful Real Estate Podcast Ever,” and it has never been more relevant than now.

Election Years and Market Volatility

One of the key points Dwan brings up during the episode is the impact of election years on the housing market. Markets tend to get volatile and uncertain during election years, primarily due to the unpredictability of future economic policies. Whether a Democrat, Republican, or Independent candidate gets elected, it significantly influences investor confidence and market trends.

Dwan notes that, “Anytime there’s an election year, people get a little sketchy about the market.” This trepidation often translates into fluctuating interest rates and shifting housing prices. Investors, homeowners, and prospective buyers should remain keenly aware of these dynamics, especially in a year as tumultuous as this one.

The Role of Sanctuary Cities

Sanctuary cities—municipalities that adopt policies to limit cooperation with federal immigration enforcement agents—are another influential factor in the current housing market. Dwan discusses how the challenges faced by sanctuary cities like Denver and other border states are causing a significant impact on real estate.

She points out, “Sanctuary cities are going broke. When they go broke, then the housing market goes down, and people don’t want to buy there because of the crisis and the drugs that come in with it.” Such fiscal instability generally leads to decreasing property values, increases in crime rates, and the boarding up of businesses, as residents seek safer grounds, thus triggering a drop in housing demand and prices.

Migration Trends and Market Dynamics

In addition to political and immigration policies, another pivotal driver of the current shock to the housing market is migration. People are moving in droves from traditionally blue states to red states, seeking economic stability, lower crime rates, and better job prospects. States like Tennessee, Texas, and Oklahoma have become popular destinations for these “migration refugees.”

“The crime is so rampant, nobody wants to move their family and their kids into a place where they just let people out of jail for all these terrible crimes.”

Dwan explains. Consequently, property values in these areas are seeing a spike, while those in troubled sanctuary cities continue to plummet.

High Interest Rates and Investment Strategies

A recurrent theme in Dwan’s discourse is the crucial decision-making process regarding high interest rates. She stresses the importance of securing a fixed-rate mortgage if you’re looking to buy a house or invest in property right now. Fixed-rate mortgages offer stability, assuring that your payments remain unchanged regardless of future market fluctuations.

She advises, “In two or three years, when the interest rates come down, just refinance for a lower rate. Don’t not buy a house or not invest because of what the market is doing.” This is sage advice for both seasoned investors and first-time home buyers, as the emphasis is on taking advantage of good deals irrespective of the current interest rate environment.

Understanding State Legislations

Dwan also emphasizes the need for investors to pay attention to state-specific landlord-tenant laws. Red states, typically more landlord-friendly, offer more protection and fewer regulations for property owners compared to blue states, which are more tenant-friendly. This can significantly affect the profitability and management of rental properties.

“If you’re buying, like, your first little thing or you’re wanting to buy a house or you want to move, just look at red states versus blue states,” she advises. For those investing in rental properties, choosing a state that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance is critical.

The Path Ahead

While the current housing market is fraught with challenges, Dwan assures us that it’s not all doom and gloom. Her optimism stems from the belief that knowledgeable investors can still find lucrative opportunities even amidst crises. By keeping a close watch on socio-political developments, migration trends, and local legislations, investors can mitigate risks and capitalize on the evolving market dynamics.
