Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

There are no houses for sale! After the aftermath of hurricane Ian, Jason addresses the misconception that there is a 'fire sale' of houses after these types of disasters. He also reminds us that 40% of home owners have NO  mortgage! And those who do have mortgages, 24% of them have a 3% or lower mortgage rate and 65% have 4% or lower! So where is the distressed home owner? There really is no pressure to sell! So if you are waiting for a crash, you might be waiting a long time!

Jason also welcomes Mike Simonsen of Altos Research as they discuss the factors that keep people from selling their homes and how federal and tax policies contribute to the shortage in housing inventory! Moreover, these factors create more upward pressure on rents!
