Ian Cook made some predictions a few months ago on how this year’s economic downturn will affect the real estate market. Specifically, he predicted:
- Rising mortgage rates will depress purchasing power
- Lower property values will be present a buying opportunity
- High gas prices will impact the short term rental market
How well have these predictions stood up? Pretty well, if you ask me. As both a home buyer and seller, I’ve seen both sides of the coin. The market for selling primary homes is definitely slower than the beginning of 2022, while the buyer’s market has lots more opportunity to negotiate prices and concessions.

The Darwinian Doctor
This past week I published a post that considered the question: Is wealth a zero sum game?
A “zero sum game” is a type of contest where there is only one winner and one loser. In this post, I argue that modern wealth can be abundant, with many winners, all through the magic of business. Let’s just say that not everyone agreed with me. This post yielded a particularly lively debate in the comments section that’s not to be missed.

In this post, Jordan Frey looks at two passive ways of investing in real estate: REITs and syndications. Though they’re both passive options, they’re very different in the way that they generate income for you. I look forward to eventually investing in syndications, so I read this post with interest.
He compares these two investments via the qualities of diversification, liquidity, tax benefits, and returns. Which one came out ahead?
