The investment trend in real estate is related with the advancements in technology. Consumer behavior has changed as improved machines, devices, and appliances find their way into the market
FREMONT, CA: The real estate industry is ever-growing and transitioning, thanks to the advancements in technology, globalization, and increasing demand for housing. With an increasing number of realtors and real estate agents to guide through the process, buying a home has become easier.
Here are four key trends in the real estate industry that will impact investors this year.
From 2003 to 2005, the housing market experienced a boom, and since then, there has been a growing demand for commercial and residential houses, leading to an increase in home prices in the market. Among homeowners, the rate of foreclosure increased highly after the boom.
The transformation in the real estate market can be seen in the growing demand for mortgage and the impact it has on real estate investment and home valuations.
The global changes in the legislation affect the economy and the real estate environment. Brexit in the UK, for example, has led to many real estate projects being postponed across the globe. And in the U.S., the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) has made the real estate market trend more uncertain.
Investors often hold off in making investments when it is impossible to forecast the future of the real estate market.
Crowdfunding is the funding of a project by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people in a recognized and registered Crowdfunding company. It allows real estate investors to get low-interest loans to finance their projects. Most of these platforms provide easy to service loans and give their members guarantee on the loans they take from the company. And the level of compensation attracts many investors into pooling more resources, availing more investment funds for companies in the real estate industry.
With new advancements in smartphones, digital communication, and print media, it has made it easier for consumers to share information across different platforms. False or imbalanced information is also reduced, which is often prevalent in the market, and investors can quickly get housing information online and decide if they should invest their money.
