More About This Show
Shortly after the housing crisis, a high percentage of renters spent more than 30% of their income on housing costs. However, it appears that that trend is reversing. This is good news for renters. This data means that incomes are rising, and also a rent correction is happening.

Particularly in large metropolitan areas like New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago, rental rates are terribly inflated. I see so many apartment buildings continuing to be built in these areas. Now since builders are constructing more and more apartment buildings, supply and demand has forced prices down.

But the thing is—they’re luxury apartments. They have amenities like pools and dog parks and movie theatres. Even if the prices are lower, they still aren’t affordable. There’s still a demand for affordable housing for working class people.

On today’s show, I’ll explain what these changes mean for investors in B and C class neighborhoods. I’ll talk about high quality apartments in places like downtown Indianapolis, and why builders don’t work on lower cost projects. There’s a lot to consider when it comes to this topic, tune into this episode to hear more about housing demands!
