SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Keller William's broker Rich Johns believes that mid-range investors ($5-10 million net worth) aren't that concerned about an unpredictable Trump Administration or rising interest rates. We view it similarly and for the same reason.
“These are investors that look at each transaction on a case-by-case basis to determine if there is an ability to raise rents, renovate and update, and if it is going to be a profitable investment going forward."
Other than net leased investments, we view real estate as a business operation. You look for opportunit ies to "infuse" value, or build the business. By improving the property, the financials, and beneficial structuring at acquisition, investors can exert partial control over the increase in value.
That doesn't mean that Trump policies can't cause economic disruption -- they probably will as trade deals are renegotiated --- but mid-range investors know that all economic cycles come and go. Weathering the cycles, plus enacting a plan to infuse value, helps achieve the strategic goals for any given property investment.
