Perspective Paper: Residential Real Estate

nnp-perspectives-thumbnail-realestateWhile millennials may be driving much of the commercial real estate market, the Greenville residential market is also feeling the impact of baby boomers downsizing into smaller homes. Joan Herlong, Residential Real Estate expert, says, “You have to view your home as an investment, or else it will be a drain. High net worth individuals that want to downsize need to understand that it is imperative to have recent renovations done on their home if they want to make a profit.”

Buyers are not willing to bid on an old home then proceed with renovations if they cannot get a good deal, which in turn, means the seller will not make any profit. It is a balancing act between minimizing inconvenience and maximizing return, dependent upon each individual’s situation. People often make the mistake of not doing their homework when it comes to buying or selling, and Herlong encourages people to interview more than one agent by asking questions – which means that both the seller and the buyer are making a fully informed decision.

Perspective Paper: Commercial Real Estate

Utilizing your Financial Advisor when it comes to real estate investments can be a powerful tool in your wealth management arsenal, especially knowing what trends are driving the industry. According to Commercial Real Estate expert, Clay Grubb, the latest trend is, “Demand outstripping supply in every component of real estate right now. There is more demand than there is supply being built, and demand will continue to outstrip supply for the foreseeable future.” This trend is due to the largest generation yet — millennials.

Millennials are a huge component of this trend in the sense that the industry has this large demand for apartments that is not able to be met. Eventually, millennials will begin to buy homes, but that will not occur for another several years. The biggest problem is that the criteria to qualify for a home loan have become so burdensome that it is extremely difficult to attain one. People don’t have easy access to home loans, and this is the reality of the regulation pendulum swinging the other way after the housing crisis of 2008.
