Our guest today is D. Sidney Potter. Author and Real Estate/Mortgage Operations Consultant. Mr. Potter has worked in the real estate and mortgage industry since 1992 and is a former member of the National Association of Home Builders, International Council of Shopping Centers. He is also at present a member of the National Association of Realtors. Today Mr. Potter will be discussing Investing in Real Estate during the time of COVID-19.
Amid all the uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, one thing is certain: the pandemic has reordered real estate markets across the board on an unprecedented scale. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the real estate industry has been disrupted in profound ways. Some of these changes may be irreversible. For, unlike the Great Recession, real estate’s re-sorting today is not the result of markets crashing. Factors like the closing of retail businesses and the furloughing of employees have been the driver of the New Normal.
What will happen in the next 3-5 years and how can the small investor profit from it? The New Normal in fact is creating huge opportunities. Dozens of cities and counties across the country that were once considered too small, or too out of the way are now finding themselves basking in new desirability with no clear end of the pandemic insight.
