Why 86% of Americans Are Wrong About the Housing Market

Episode #865

Most Americans believe that buying a house is a BAD idea right now. With so much hate on the housing market from everyday people, why are expert investors buying more than ever? Do they know something that we don’t? Or is it just because they have more money and experience than the rookie real estate investor or first-time home buyer? Nope, it’s even more simple than that!

We rounded up four housing market experts who actively invest to get their takes on the 2024 housing market. David Greene, expert investor; Rob Abasolo, the king of short-term rentals; Dave Meyer, host of “On the Market,” and Henry Washington, house flipper and buy and hold investor, are here to give us their takes on whether buying a home could a be good, bad, or ugly decision this year.

The experts also review top surveys that highlight consumer, home buyer, and investor sentiment, plus what they think the best move to make in 2024 is. Take it from four investors who have built considerable wealth through real estate; following the masses isn’t always your best bet.
