I’m going to date myself here!! I worked in corporate jobs during the 90’s when the internet was emerging for business usage. Recently in a discussion on crypto tech, a comparison was made to the internet in the early 90’s and I flashed back….
At that time, I was working in the C-Suite of a successful mainframe based software company in San Francisco. Our CEO literally said, “the internet is a fad.” We know how that story ended!
Impact of Wall Street’s merge with Main Street?
The merging of Wall Street and Main Street is mostly an untold story in 2022. Yet the aggressive acquisition of residential real estate by Wall Street investment funds along with a massive influx of foreign capital into Main Street are a large part of today’s shifting dynamics.
Since early 2020, as the COVID crisis unfolded, I’ve been watching and analyzing the real estate market with a laser focus. It was clear to me that we are in unprecedented times, with influences on Main Street outside of normal real estate fluctuations. While focusing on the effects of COVID on home buying patterns, emergence of new wealth including crypto real estate, there are key dynamics that remain mostly unexplored.
This week’s interview by Inman News with Redfin CEO, Glenn Kelman, spotlighted insights into the effect of Wall Street’s investment into Main Street.
“Whatever correction we’re in,” Kelman continued, “is going to happen faster than it has in the past, and it’s already been sharper than most people realize.” Kelman said the housing market is becoming more volatile. That’s happening in part due to the flood of well-funded institutions, which respond to market changes more quickly than individual buyers and treat housing more like shares in a corporation. “I just think as Wall Street owns more of Main Street,” Kelman said, “the housing market will look more like the stock market, which is extremely volatile.” Read more
Never have I seen a real estate market with so many different versions of reality, and layers of data that can be counter-intuitive when it comes to analyzing trends, values and potential risks. This is indeed what makes me think of quantum physics! Read more
Market dynamics today are indeed very different from the mortgage crisis. There are contra indicating statistics, even within one location. What buyers are paying NOW for similar homes determines values, not what was negotiated two weeks ago, two months ago or last year.To yield the highest net in any market, it’s important to price ahead of current trends so that you don’t find yourself chasing the market down.

2008 Equity Crisis vs 2022 Economic Crisis
For the past two years, conversations in mainstream media, Clubhouse or broker meetings have been focused on a lack of foreclosure risks due to the fact “it’s not 2008.” However, that discussion ignores the current tragedy of 2022. Read more

Short sales are a segment of real estate that is widely misunderstood and poorly represented. Often I hear negative comments from real estate agents that are actually just self fulfilling prophecies. Meaning that short sales fail primarily due to the people involved not being experienced specialists.
The process is completely different from a “normal” real estate transaction and there’s literally no training for real estate agents or brokers through traditional channels. The way to create success is to create the right team to assist you. After you read this article, let’s talk! I’ll help you connect with the right people for your situation, locally or across the country. Read more
Let’s talk! Today’s market shifts are unlike anything we’ve seen in recent history. In fact the affordability gap for homeownership is the worst it’s been in 100 years. At the same time, there’s record breaking global wealth expansion. It’s a complex market with overlapping, sometimes conflicting data and trends. That’s why I network constantly to stay abreast of what’s going on now, what possibilities are on the horizon and how they can impact real estate locally.
In addition to Clubhouse, I participate in Twitter Spaces conversations with Wall Street experts, industry analysts and economists to keep informed on global, national and local trends and influences that can impact your real estate goals for today.
