128: The Future of Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Today’s guest is Jason Hartman. Since purchasing his first rental property when he was 20 years old, Jason has been involved in thousands of transactions and owned income properties in 17 cities across 11 states. He’s the creator of Jason’s Complete Solution for Real Estate Investors, a comprehensive system that gives real estate investors the education, research, resources, and technology to deal with their income property needs.

Jason’s system has evolved over time, and it’s once again changing – as much of our society is – as we face the challenges and major cultural shifts brought about by the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. He sees major changes coming in the world of real estate, and a profound need for investors at all stages of life, but especially retirees, to reposition their portfolios and their thinking.

Today, Jason joins the podcast to discuss the sweeping generational change that will come as the pandemic blows over, why it’s so hard to predict the future (or time the market) in the short-term, and his core strategy for successful real estate investing in good times and bad.

In this podcast interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why Jason believes that we’re going to see a mass migration out of high density living environments and into suburban living as the health risks of the coronavirus crisis come to an end.
  • How the current depression differs from the Great Recession – and why he believes that the United States is in a much better economic position than other countries right now.
  • Why Jason recommends purchasing what he calls necessity housing in suburban markets right now – not retail space, office buildings, luxury short-term rentals, or homes in “trophy cities” that were extremely expensive over the last decade.
  • What the future looks like for real estate investors in a shrinking economy.
  • Red flags to look out for if you’re looking to get into real estate investing – and the key factor to watch in order to avoid gambling as you make investments.
  • Jason’s four principles for investing in times of crisis.
