Investing in Real Estate

One of the Questions I am asked the most is, “Is now a good time to invest in Real Estate?”or “Why should I invest in Real Estate?”

As a third generation native of the Valley of the Sun, Mr. Allen has a unique perspective on the value of investing in the Valley’s Real Estate. For most the allure of Real Estate investing is the long term appreciation, however without the perspective born of experience investment in the wrong piece of Real Estate can limit the potential for appreciation. Maricopa County is one of the fastest growing areas in the entire Country, but an investment property needs not only to be in the path of growth, but in quality areas of the Valley where appreciation is insured.

To understand the future one must study the past. With the unique experience of seeing the growth of the Valley over the past 100 years the potential becomes clear. I am certain that you have heard someone say, “If only I would have purchased (fill in the blank) a few years back, I would be rich!” It is a true statement. Vision is the key.

Market Trends and Conditions

The Real Estate market across the Country and here in Arizona has always been cyclical. However, there is always a way to make money in Real Estate, whether the market is trending up or down. You just need someone with experience to guide you through the process.
