This Real Estate Market Could Be a Moneymaker for Vacation Rental Investors

The first person I knew in the United States to take COVID-19 seriously was a Manhattan blogger who owned vacation rental properties in upstate New York. By February, she had pulled her children out of school and gone to the Adirondacks, a move her peers first found dramatic but turned out to demonstrate excellent foresight.

As the pandemic began to stalk New York’s five boroughs, more acquaintances began to ask for her real estate agent husband’s services — to the point where, once he’d rented out their own properties to Big Apple escapees, he became a specialist in upstate New York rental homes. And not for short-term rentals. Many families, including their own, decided to stay in the wooded, vaguely wild rural region of upstate New York until… well, who knows?

In communities like the Adirondacks, most vacation rentals are typically booked solid in peak months and slow in the

Florida Man Used Haitian-American Investors’ Funds for Personal Use

The SEC charged a Florida-based man with using investment funds from more than 200 primarily Haitian-American investors for his own personal use.

Between Aug. 2017 and Nov. 2018, Anson Jean-Pierre solicited investors through his company, Brothers Investment Group International, according to the SEC complaint filed in federal district court in Miami last week. According to the complaint, Jean-Pierre urged investors to invest in “membership interests” in his company, telling them Brothers Investment Group would use the funds to oversee development projects in Haiti, and that their funds would be invested “at a profit.” The projects included potential real estate, agricultural, e-commerce and banking projects. 

Jean-Pierre claimed the products would help “eradicate poverty and promote prosperity and financial security among the Haitian community,” and said about 96% of an investment amount would be directly invested in the development projects, with the remaining money being used for administrative costs, according to the

The US CRE Market Goes on Sale for Foreign Investors

The US commercial real estate market is looking very cheap to foreign investors, who find their currency hedging costs aligning nicely with the direction of interest rates. 

Currency hedging costs are driven by interest rate differentials between two currencies. Low US rates translate to lower costs for foreign investors looking to hedge the currency risk of their US investments.

Here is why this dynamic is expected to continue. 

Ciccy Yang, director of Global Markets for Hudson Advisors, explains that short-term and medium-term rates drive hedging costs. “And on that front, the Fed’s been giving very strong hints that more fiscal stimulus is needed to keep the economic recovery on track,” Yang told listeners in CBRE’s weekly podcast.

If the stimulus is less than what the Fed prefers, Yang thinks it may have a more significant role in spurring the recovery. Its tools include more quantitative easing for an extended period

Should Value Investors Choose DaVita (DVA) Stock Now?

Residential vs. Commercial Investing: Which Should New Investors Choose?

New real estate investors often start with residential real estate and switch to commercial investing once they become more experienced. It doesn’t always happen that way; some investors jump right into commercial investing, but that’s not the norm, probably because the reasons new investors should start with residential investing are compelling.

Familiarity

Most people are more familiar with residential property than with commercial property; after all, people live in residential property, which could be a single-family home, condo, townhouse, duplex, triplex, or quadplex. Property with five or more units (like an apartment building) is commercial property, as are hotels, retail space, warehouses, and vacant land.

Although there is plenty to learn about being a landlord, it doesn’t take a lot of experience to be successful. To invest in commercial real estate, you should know the industry well — as well as you likely know residential — and you should have
