The Federal Reserve just announced yet another raise in interest rates. Higher rates will make purchasing homes harder and more expensive for homebuyers, but what does this mean for real estate investors?

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m discussing the three main ways that an interest rate hike directly influences real estate prices. I’ll share how to analyze how the rate will affect your purchases, and how investors can prepare for the future. Don’t miss it!

More About This Show
If you’re planning to purchase your real estate investments with a conventional mortgage, this newly increased interest rate could be an issue. Your ROI will immediately decrease if you’re paying more for a mortgage. That’s why cash is king; if you’re paying with cash, you’ll be unaffected by interest rates.

Additionally, banks aren’t as likely to lend when the rates are up. Usually, banks trade money around, but when rates rise their cash flow is more restricted. As an investor, this is your opportunity to swoop in with cash on hand to purchase properties that people are unable to get mortgages for.

Another reason why interest rates affect real estate prices are the basic valuation fundamentals. It changes how much you pay for everything, not just the mortgage.

The underlying theme for investors is: cash is critical in this economic climate! As an investor, if you’re able to pay for your properties with cash, you won’t have to worry about mortgages. That’s exactly what Harry Dent predicted in our interview late last year.

It’s going to become increasingly difficult for new homebuyers to acquire traditional mortgages. Not that we want to champion others’ misfortunes, but as investors there will be an opportunity to purchase homes that others are unable to qualify for IF you have cash on hand.

On today’s show, I’ll dive more deeply into the importance of mortgage rates. I’ll talk about the overall implications on the economy, and why cash is so important for investors. Don’t miss episode 132!
