Strategien auf dem heutigen Immobilienmarkt
Das Wall Street Journal hat ein kleines Q&A-Spiel mit Peebels, Chef einer Investment- und Entwicklungsfirma (www.peeblescorp.com) gemacht. Hier Auszüge, die unseres Erachtens auch auf deutsche Verhältnisse anwendbar sind:

Q: With all the financial upheavals of the past week, does it still make sense for the average investor to buy residential real estate?

A: It's a tremendous buying opportunity. Unless you need liquidity, real estate is the best long-term investment. I like the great leverage it gives you. You can live in it. And at some price, you can always rent it out.

Q: Under the current scenario, should you liquidate stocks to invest in real estate?

A: I have no money in the stock market. It's too volatile, and it hasn't had a leveling. If you have patient money, real estate gives you the ability to ride out bad times.

Q: What's the best way to make money in foreclosures?

A: I don't think you should buy, upgrade and flip. You need to buy, rent and hold.

Q: Should you look for foreclosure properties priced in the bottom, middle or top of the market?

A: Stay away from luxury properties, because they won't command enough rent to cover your equity investment. And working-class neighborhoods will continue to have job losses--though small, easy-to-manage multifamily properties in close-in areas can be opportunities. I would buy mid-priced houses in areas with good schools, transportation and job growth. When the market improves, your tenants may want to buy the property.

Q: What's the biggest mistake buyers can make in this market?

A: Becoming too focused on being victims, rather than being opportunistic. There will be a lot of people making a lot of money during this downturn. You need to think: Why not me?
