Big questions investors are asking right now

Over the past few years we’ve seen record-high appreciation and tremendous competition over a limited housing supply. Things began changing in 2022. First, the war in Ukraine and further Covid outbreaks in China. Then the Fed began waging a war of its own on sky high inflation. When interest rates began to increase combined with other factors, the housing market shifted to where it is now.

This major shift has led investors to ask questions about how to profit during times like this. Our experts weighed in with their opinions and perceptions of what’s going on in the market. Sundae does not provide investment advice: always be sure to use your best judgment and complete your due diligence when making an investment decision.

How can investors navigate the new reality versus seller expectations?

There are a few things that you can do to navigate this. First and foremost, you’ll want to be clear on your underwriting and only offer what you’re comfortable with. It’s also important to factor in current listing prices as opposed to those from several months ago because they don’t necessarily reflect the market today.

What can investors do to fund future deals?

Underwriting has changed in recent months. With money harder to come by, some investors feel stuck. To overcome this obstacle you should consider leveraging your relationships. That could mean with other lenders you know or even asking your local investor advisor for recommendations.

What’s your advice to investors on the sideline right now?

There is a lot of opportunity for investors who are willing to get creative. It might be possible to find a deal simply because there’s less competition. Another option is to consider multiple exit strategies: could you buy and hold? Should you flip? Would this property be a good short-term rental? By looking at each property from multiple angles, you’ll have more potential options.
