Trump’s Impact on the Apartment Sector
Nov 21, 2016 | Bendix Anderson | National Real Estate Investor
It’s far too early to tell what the Trump Presidency will mean for the apartment business—but experts have at least come up with their list of the biggest questions that a Trump White House poses for their business.
“The operative word for the commercial real estate sales market for the near future is ‘uncertainty,’” says Jay Parsons, vice president for MPF Research.
During the campaign, Trump made promises that would have an earthshaking effect on the real estate markets. His pledge to deported millions of undocumented immigrants would empty apartments around the country. A proposed $1 trillion infrastructure program could boost the economy. For now, though, real estate professionals are focused on more mundane proposals already underway in Congress.Go Back
I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture. For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments. Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients. I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
