Bank Lending, Yields and Real Values

Every now and then it’s useful to take a step back from the daily grind of finding good investments and look at the larger trends developing in the world. The rise of non-establishment populism; the continuing next to nothing interest rates; the larger economic and social issues that seem to loom over our shoulders like the four horsemen of the apocalypse. One larger trend that...

2nd Tier Cities Attracting Techie Value Hunters

  I’ve been noticing a long-term trend of couples waiting a longer time before buying their own homes. This is having a marked effect on the rental market across the US (and, indeed similarly in the UK as people are priced out of the market for longer). Demand for single family home rentals in cities like Buffalo is at an all time high, as families remain in rental accommodation for longer...

Real Estate Tips – Getting Finance and Reducing Money Down for USA Investments

One of the biggest issues for foreigners buying in the US is the difficulty in obtaining good lending on properties. Even a small amount of gearing can improve returns dramatically, and reduce the amount of money needed for the purchase. Sadly though, in USA right now, often the only options are buying cash, or taking ‘hard money’ lending which can have high interest rates (10-15% at time of writing)...

How Affordable is Buffalo in 2015?
