CW 437: Real Estate Investment Trends in America with David Crowe Chief Economist at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)
In the introduction of today’s Creating Wealth Show, Jason Hartman gives the lowdown on some inspirational and uncannily accurate quotes and mottos for both your personal and business life, as well as demonstrating the importance of focusing on growth.
David Crowe, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the NAHB, joins Jason to continue the theme of growth, to consider some of the changing motivations in the housing market and to think about the wider impact that first-time buyers (or the lack thereof!) are having on real estate trends.
01.47 – You should constantly have your mind focused on increasing growth, rather than letting your ideas and your drive become stagnant.
03.25 – Chris Guillebeau places a lot of emphasis on believing in your own dreams and finding your motivation for creating change.
08.23 – The Meet the Masters event in January is now confirmed, so register your place at www.JasonHartman.com
10.15 – The uncertainty over mortgages and housing recovery processes is keeping first-time buyers well away from the market.
14.00 – Whilst we can still monitor the growth of recovery, it’s slower than we would ideally like to see.
18.58 – NAHB’s membership is mostly made up of small businesses, but they currently total around 140,000 members.
23.19 – Housing developments and techniques are changing now that it’s easier to build the technology directly into the house.
27.55 – When first-time buyers do get into the market, they have both a significant direct and indirect impact.
29.46 – There is a noticeable trend between first-time buyers and a lifestyle shift to marriage and having children.
