Is there a Crash Coming? Latest Market News – December 2018
Don’t Call Me “Chicken Little.” Not just yet. But maybe soon…
In this Article/Post, I’m going to do something a little…different. I hope you like it.
In order to bring you as much value as I can, I’d like to share a few thoughts, observations, and instincts about what’s going on out there in the ‘real world,’ and how it relates to YOU.
Specifically, how YOU can potentially PROFIT and BENEFIT from what’s going on out there – EARLIER and easier than 99% of the general sleepwalking public.
Is That OK With You? 🙂 Great…Let’s Get TO it!
Listen, I’m starting to see some serious signs that the real estate market is beginning to COOL OFF.
New home sales are slowing way down. Existing homes sales are down. Inventory is starting to pick back up a bit in many markets across the country.
In addition to that, have you seen the stock market lately? What about the cryptocurrency markets?? At the time I’m writing this,
They’re all CRASHING!!
Something you might not know about me is that I personally LOVE cryptocurrency, and have been investing heavily in it for some time now.
It’s made me a lot of $$. At the time I’m writing this, the prices we’re able to buy at are the lowest I’ve seen in a long time.
And you know what that means: Opportunity! When it comes to investing, we must live by the 4-word axiom: Buy low, Sell high.
If you know anything about Blockchain technology and what it represents to our future, you’ll naturally recognize the incredible opportunity we’re facing RIGHT NOW. I’ve been continuing to buy as the prices have been falling. Yes, I’ll admit that my sphincter has puckered up every single time, but I’m still doing it.
Of course, I’m NOT giving you any financial advice here. But if you want to see something truly interesting, just take a look at the cryptocurrency markets when you have the chance. Here’s a great place to get started.
As far as real estate goes, GET READY.
Why do I say that? Because if things continue the way they’re going right now (down), and we start to see another housing crash soon (which I believe we just might), guess what?
All those sellers that you’re talking to now that say they only want full price, all cash??
Yeah, you should start to see more people become flexible for how they sell their house as their motivation increases when the prices continue declining and the typical buyers become more and more picky.
Please understand that I’m not a typical bean-counting research kinda guy.
In fact, when I was in school, I hated to do research! Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I had to go to the library and start digging through those index card files and reference things using the Dewey Decimal System! Remember that? If you’re older than 40, you probably do. If you’re younger than than and only know the internet, you’re spoiled and don’t even realize how good & easy you have it now. 🙂
For that & many other reasons, I invite & encourage you to do your own research, if you like. Take a look at these charts & reports to get a good start…
Do you remember the great real estate crash & worldwide market recession of 2007 & 2008?
Yeah, me too. In fact, I still remember it like it was yesterday. NOT a pleasant memory, is it?
Like many investors, it pretty much knocked me out of the game. For a few years!
For me, it was ok, because it truly humbled me & helped me become a better man and a better father.
But as they say, “Live & Learn.” And I tell you one thing:
If I could go BACK in time, I would have done things TOTALLY different than I did then!
First off, instead of shying away from the game, I would have run towards it.
There was blood in the streets. People were in desperate situations and too many people lost their homes.
At the end of the day, the big banks were the only ones still standing, the bastards.
Looking back, I would have bought MORE houses. Taken over debt. Utilize creative real estate techniques.
In short, DO this business the way we know how.
People will ALWAYS need a place to live, and you can always rent houses out to make that cash flow until the prices come back up enough for you to sell!
By the way, if you haven’t seen it already, I TOTALLY recommend you watch the movie “The Big Short.”
This will give you some great perspective on things. Have you already seen it? Watch it again!
A great question I occasionally like to ask myself & others is this:
“Knowing what I/you know now, what would I/you do DIFFERENTLY if you faced that same situation again today?”
What would YOU do differently if you saw another upcoming housing market crash?
Would you do like most people today & just get out of real estate altogether?
Or would you see the incredible OPPORTUNITY that a crisis can represent?
I don’t mean to sound like a cold-hearted bastard here, but remember this:
“Opportunity doesn’t ever go AWAY. It just goes to someone ELSE (if you don’t take it).”
As Warren Buffet said, “When the market is greedy, be fearful. When the market is fearful, be greedy.”
That means that IF the market does crash soon, there will be opportunities out there for you. Things will change. You’ve just got to be READY for them when they come.
Which now begs the question: HOW should you prepare yourself for this possibility?
Abraham Lincoln said it best, “LUCK is what happens when opportunity meets preparation.“
Dirty Harry asked this great question, “Do ya feel lucky, Punk?” Forgive my wacky sense of humor here.
But seriously… If you want to get LUCKY, you’ve got to get yourself PREPARED and put yourself in a POSITION to benefit from what just might be happening and what might be coming soon.
HOW? By continuing to LEARN and APPLY these creative real estate tactics. Get GOOD and READY to utilize Subject-to investing techniques. Sharpen your ax of knowledge on HOW to construct and present Owner Financing and Lease Purchase Deals!
In other words, KEEP doing what you’re doing. Just do MORE of it.
That means – keep talking with sellers. Talk to at least 5 new people a day.
The TRUTH: MOST of them will say ‘No’ the first time they talk to you. That’s just how it is.
So FOLLOW the F*** UP! Don’t just let ’em slide. Don’t just take their word for it. If it’s not a good fit for them for now, call them back later to see if they’ve sold their house yet. And when you do, just use my killer “Prepare to Follow-Up” Script (I just made that name up, but I kinda like it!):
“Mr. Seller, it sounds like this might not be a good fit for us at this time, because you say that you only want full price, all cash, but I tell you what…
I’ve enjoyed talking with you today!” (if that’s true) “Why don’t I send you some more information so that you can get a better idea of what we’re able to do for you, and we can talk again in 2-3 weeks! How’s that sound?”
When they say yes, just get their email address & send them something to read that introduces you and gives them a few offers for their consideration!
Need help making offers? Use my incredibly powerful & easy-to-use Fast Offer Generator! (please pardon the plug!)
Then set an appointment to follow up with them at a designated date & time.
Trust me (and all of us who are having success buying houses & doing deals) when I tell you that…
The Fortune is in the Follow-Up!
If you simply do this consistently, and keep track of the results you’re getting, I can practically guarantee you the following results:
- You’ll get BETTER at this…FAST!
- You’ll gain more CONFIDENCE.
- You’ll have a pipeline FULL of leads and deals.
- You’ll do DEALS. And then you’ll do MORE deals.
- You’ll start to notice that MORE people WANT to do business with you.
- People will start talking about you & your reputation will grow. (hopefully in a good way lol)
- Leads and Deals will start to come TO you, rather than you having to chase them.
- You’ll be READY if/when the market crashes, and…
- You’ll be ready if/when the market doesn’t crash!
- You’ll have MORE disposable income.
WARNING: Side effects may include, but not be limited to: You might just get to be a shrewd mofo & become more of a successful asshole (like me!). 🙂
In wrapping this up, I’d just like to say this disclaimer:
I don’t know if the market will crash or not. Shoot, no one does. Maybe it will. Maybe it won’t.
As always, time will tell.
But I DO know this: I’d MUCH rather be prepared & ready than NOT be ready if and when it DOES crash.
Wouldn’t you agree? 😉
Oh, and if the market does crash, don’t blame Trump. It will NOT really be his fault, despite what the horrible, lying, corrupt, and disgusting mainstream media will no-doubt claim. The truth is that it will be the fault of the ones who always cause the suffering of mankind: The international banking cartels, and the so-called globalist ruling ‘elite’ who guide them.
But that’s a conversation for another day.
And finally – think about buying some Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency NOW, while it’s still on SALE, if you can. When the prices go way up (which they hopefully, probably will within the next few months), sell it off and make your money! Then rinse & repeat. (Disclaimer: A good rule of thumb is to only invest what you can afford to lose, so if you’re living paycheck-to-paycheck & barely getting by, this might not be for you right now. But if you’re in a position to do so, now would be a great time).
Thanks for reading this special report. I hope you’ve gotten a lot out of it, and I hope it’s stimulated you to think about things a bit more. As always, I genuinely and truly encourage you to do what most other people don’t do: THINK for yourself! Stay awake while all around you are sleeping. And be prepared for the multitude of opportunities you encounter every day.
Until Next Time, I remain…
